Judge rules Mohican reservation diminished


A federal magistrate last week ruled that the Stockbridge-Munsee Mohican Reservation in Wisconsin has been diminished.

In a lawsuit brought by the state over a disputed property on which gaming was occurring, U.S. Magistrate Patricia Gorence said Congress reduced the size of the reservation in 1871 to 15,000 acres. The rest of the reservation was sold to timber companies.

The tribe plans to appeal the ruling. President Bob Chicks said the land was sold without the tribe's knowledge.
