Satiacum v. Washington, 414 U.S. 1 (1973)

Satiacum v. Washington

No. 72-552

Decided October 15, 1973

414 U.S. 1

Syllabus

State courts should have determined where petitioner's alleged offenses occurred with respect to boundaries of present or former Indian reservation, since, if they occurred outside those boundaries, the State Supreme Court unnecessarily reached a federal question in deciding that the reservation as such had ceased to exist.

Certiorari granted; 80 Wash.2d 492, 495 P.2d 1035, vacated and remanded.
