A federal appeals court on Thursday gave permission for private landowners and two counties to join the Cayuga Nation land claim.

A federal judge awarded the tribe $247.9 million for 64,000 acres of stolen land. The money is to come from the state.

The case is being appealed by the tribe and the state for different reasons. The counties and 7,000 landowners are now parties.
