The Osage Nation’s attorneys are “hopeful” that the Nation’s nine-year-old Trust lawsuit against the U.S. government might be nearing an end.
“Our goal is to get a judgment or settlement as quickly as we can,” said Wilson Pipestem, the Nation’s attorney for the case, at a trust update meeting June 11 at the Wahzhazhi Cultural Center. “I’m very optimistic . . . I’m hopeful that this could happen within the year.”
