A federal judge in New York dismissed one of the Seneca Nation's land claims.

The opinion by U.S. District Judge Richard Arcara was released today.

Arcara said the Seneca Nation didn't own Grand Island and other lands when they were bought by the state of New York in 1815. The tribe was claiming the land under a 1794 treaty.
