ALERT: Supreme Court ruling impacts property and title rights across large portion of Oklahoma

SCOTUS Ruling graphicToday, the Supreme Court ruled nearly half of the State of Oklahoma is an Indian Reservation.

From a New York Times article:

  • The 5-to-4 decision, potentially one of the most consequential legal victories for Native Americans in decades, could have far-reaching implications for the 1.8 million people who live across what is now deemed “Indian Country” by the high court.
  • Justice Neil M. Gorsuch said that Congress had granted the Creek a reservation, and that the United States needed to abide by its promises.

The outcome could have far-reaching implications for the State of Oklahoma and its citizens as it relates to property rights and land titles, taxation, and other matters involving tribal affairs.
