Native American lands to be discussed at 2006 Real Property Law Institute
On June 27, 2005, the Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma filed suit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Western Division in the case entitled Eastern Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma vs. State of Ohio, Governor Bob Taft, et al., 3:05CV7267. An amended complaint was filed on September 28, 2005.
The Shawnee tribe's amended complaint alleges and seeks an order declaring that the Tribe continues to hold aboriginal and recognized title to certain lands within the state of Ohio. The tribe's complaint also alleges that the tribe has use and access rights to all or portions of lands in thirty-six counties in Central and Western Ohio for hunting, fishing and gathering purposes.
To find out how this may impact title to real estate in the affected areas and the title industry's response, attend the Real Property Institute on Feb. 4 as Deborah A. McDonald of LandAmerica Financial Group discusses this topic in regards to title insurance issues.
