    2nd Circuit protects Cayuga Nation from foreclosure proceeding

    A county in New York can’t foreclose on properties owned by the Cayuga Nation due to the tribe’s sovereign immunity, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today.
    Seneca County started foreclosure proceedings after the tribe failed to pay property taxes on non-trust lands. The 2nd Circuit easily put an end to the dispute by relying on the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Michigan v. Bay Mills Indian Community.
