Government Moves to Dismiss Goodeagle v. U.S. under SCt’s Decision in Tohono O’odham

Here is that motion:

US Motion to Dismiss Goodeagle Claims

An excerpt:

It is now well-established that this Court lacks subject-matter jurisdiction to entertain a suit if the plaintiff has a suit in another court based upon substantially the same operative facts. Plaintiffs’ instant Complaint and the class action, currently pending before the District Court for the District of Columbia (“District Court”), Cobell, et al. v. Salazar, et al., No. 96-cv-1285, have asserted claims based on substantially the same operative facts. Thus, Congress, under 28 U.S.C. § 1500, has explicitly deprived this Court of jurisdiction to entertain a case containing claims that are for or in respect to claims which Plaintiffs have asserted in another pending case.

We reported the complaint here.
