Mealey's (June 17, 2015, 9:50 AM EDT) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — A judge of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims on April 16 held that the Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma is the proper recipient of any unclaimed per capita payments from the Indian Claims Commission (ICC) judgment trust but denied the parties’ cross-motions for summary judgment, saying that disputed material facts exist on whether all of the funds have been paid (Quapaw Tribe of Oklahoma v. United States, No. 12-592L, C. Fed. Clms.; 2015 U.S. Claims LEXIS 439).
