Download(PDF): Complaint in re Schaghticoke Tribal Nation v. State of Connecticut (Oct. 13, 2016)

Excerpt from article:

In a lawsuit filed in Hartford on Thursday, the Kent tribe alleges the state took the land it was managing for the Schaghticokes — eventually amounting to 2,000 acres — without compensating the tribe. The lawsuit contends the tribe is owed at least $613 million, but the tribe says it expects that number to rise because it has not been able to determine the value of all the tracts.
