Justice Delayed is Okay with the Supremes

The US Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of a decision from the 2nd Circuit denying the Cayuga Nation's attempts to reclaim 64,000 acres stolen from them by the State of New York. The 2nd Circuit ruled that the Cayuga had "waited" too long and the land claim was too "disruptive." So the moral of this story is: if you steal something and keep it long enough so that justice might be inconvenient, that makes it okay.
