Connecticut: Tribe can't sue state for $600M for land grab
February 15, 2017
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — State officials are claiming government immunity in response to a lawsuit by a Native American tribe seeking more than $600 million for land it says the state seized from 1801 to 1918.
The state attorney general’s office asked a state judge in Hartford on Tuesday to dismiss the lawsuit filed in October by the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation. The motion includes the state’s first public response to the lawsuit.
