Sho-Bans to fight Nez Perce settlement in court

The Shoshone-Bannock Nation of Idaho plans to challenge the Nez Perce Tribe's $193 million water settlement in court.

A lawyer for the Shoshone-Bannocks says the deal ignores the water rights of the Lemhi-Shoshone Tribe. The lawyer also says the deal allows the Nez Perce to assert authority over Shoshone-Bannock waters.

The state of Idaho, the federal government and the Nez Perce Tribe have each given their approval to the settlement.
