Nebraska v. Parker, 14-1406

In a suit brought by a village, established pursuant to an 1882 Act that authorized the Secretary of the Interior to survey, appraise, and sell roughly 50,000 acres of Omaha Indian Reservation land lying west of a railroad right-of-way, seeking declaratory relief and a permanent injunction prohibiting the Tribe from asserting its jurisdiction over the disputed land and imposing an amended Beverage Control Ordinance on village retailers, the Eighth Circuit's affirmation of the District Court's judgment in favor of Tribe is affirmed where the 1882 Act did not diminish the Omaha Indian Reservation.
