Conn. AG wants to break court agreement with BIA
Wednesday, November 12, 2003

Connecticut attorney general Richard Blumenthal is seeking to break a court agreement with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Blumenthal is challenging the federal recognition of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation. As part of a court case, he agreed not to submit any new information about the tribe's status after September 29.

But now he claims the tribe has supplied fraudulent information about its membership to the BIA. He is asking a federal judge for permission to respond.
