Turtle Talk Poll: Why no decision in Tohono O'odham case?

Turtle Talk is asking readers why they think the U.S. Supreme Court hasn't issued a ruling in US v. Tohono O'odham Nation, a trust case.

The case is one of the oldest on the docket. Oral arguments were held on November 1, 2010, but no decision has been made.

The justices will determine whether the Tohono O'odham Nation can pursue a historical accounting in federal district court at the same time it seeks damages in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
