US v. Oregon Opinion
This 2011 order of the federal district court of Oregon addresses a dispute that arose when NOAA Fisheries accepted a tributary harvest plan from the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes for off reservation fisheries in the Grande Ronde River and Imnaha River sub-basins in northeast Oregon. The Nez Perce Tribe disputed this action and its position was supported by the Yakama, Umatilla, and Warm Springs tribes.
