Blackfeet housing plaintiffs to continue lawsuit
The plaintiffs in Marceau v. Blackfeet Housing Authority will continue to press their case before the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Blackfeet Nation of Montana.

The plaintiffs sued the federal government and the tribe over moldy homes that were built with federal funds. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that HUD did not have a trust responsibility to the homeowners and that they must exhaust their remedies in tribal court.

An attorney said the lawsuit could end up in federal court again after the plaintiffs go through the tribal court system.
