City in New York to drop legal battles against Oneida Nation





The city of Oneida, New York, is ending litigation against the Oneida Nation.

The city voted to terminate the services of a law firm that was handling litigation against the tribe. The city will now be eligible for money as part of a global settlement that the tribe reached with the state.

The settlement resolves a wide range of land, taxation, jurisdiction, gaming and other issues. It was approved by a federal judge last month.
