    DOI requests summary judgement in Cherokee Freedmen case

     The Department of the Interior is requesting a summary judgment in a long-standing lawsuit over the tribal citizenship eligibility of the Cherokee Freedmen descendants.
    Filed late Friday night, the department’s 72-page motion argues that the Treaty of 1866, which guarantees “all the rights of native Cherokees” to Cherokee Freedmen and their descendants, extends to tribal citizenship, despite a vote to the contrary by the tribe.
