Supreme Court sides with Native American hunter as Gorsuch joins liberals

By Jacqueline Thomsen  - 05/20/19 10:25 AM EDT
 

The Supreme Court on Monday sided with a Wyoming hunter charged with off-season hunting, ruling 5-4 that a 150-year-old treaty between a Native American tribe and the western state was still active and protected the man's rights.

Clayvin Herrera was charged in 2014 with off-season hunting, but he argued that an 1868 treaty between Wyoming and the Crow Tribe protected his ability to hunt at that time.

Wyoming had argued that the treaty was invalidated when it achieved statehood and lower courts agreed, leading to Herrera's conviction on the hunting charge.
