Leisnoi village status upheld in Court

October 8th, 2008 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports that The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled in favor of Leisnoi Inc., Monday, in the case of Stratman v. Leisnoi, effectively ending the nearly 30-year-old lawsuit.  This is possibly the end to a long struggle between these two parties.  For the full article, click here.

In 1974, the Department of the Interior certified Leisnoi, Inc., as a Village Corporation for the Native Village of Woody Island.  Leisnoi thus became eligible to select over 115,000 acres of land, which it would hold and manage on behalf of the Native Village of Woody Island.  Leisnoi selected some land on Woody Island, as well as some land on Kodiak Island and Long Island.  For more information on the legal cases between these two parties visit the ANCSA Resource Center site.
