The U.S. Supreme Court decided Tuesday to hear the case in which Oneida and Madison counties are attempting to foreclose on Oneida Indian Nation-owned properties on which taxes haven’t been paid. On April 27, a three-member panel of the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower-court decision that said the counties could not foreclose on the properties because the Oneidas are protected by sovereign immunity.
