US v. NAVAJO NATION, 01-1375

An Indian tribe's claim for compensation from the federal government, for alleged breach of trust in approval of coal lease amendments negotiated by the Tribe and a private lessee, fails as it does not derive from any liability-imposing provision of the Indian Mineral Leasing Act of 1938 or its implementing regulations.
