This is also known as the Ceded Lands Case:Docket 07-1372: HAWAII V. OFFICE OF HAWAIIAN AFFAIRSQUESTIONS PRESENTED:In the Joint Resolution to Acknowledge the 100th Anniversary of the January 17, 1893 Overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii, Congress acknowledged and apologized for the United States’ role in that overthrow. The question here is whether this symbolic resolution strips Hawaii of its sovereign authority to sell, exchange, or transfer 1.2 million acres of state land—29 percent of the total land area of the State and almost all the land owned by the State—unless and until it reaches a politicalsettlement with native Hawaiians about the status of that land.Oral Arguments might be heard on C-SPAN:http://www.c-span.org/courts/oralarguments.asp
