The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected petitions in two Indian law cases.

Without comment, the justices declined South Fork Band v. United States. The case involves a long-running challenge to an Indian Claims Commission ruling that said the Western Shoshone Nation was owed $26 million for the loss of their lands. The justices also rejected Roberts v. Hagener. The case was a challenge to Montana state regulations that limit hunting on reservations to members of federally-recognized tribes.
