Whereas by the Special Jurisdictional Act approved May 14, 1926 (44 Stat. L. 555), the claims of the Chippewa Indians of Minnesota against the United States were referred to the Court of Claims “with right of appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States by either party as in other cases”, it being the intention that both parties should have the right of appeal to the Supreme Court; and

Whereas the Supreme Court has since decided that notwithstanding such a provision there is no right of appeal, in view of the Judicial Code, as amended, unless the Jurisdictional Act specifically provides that the Supreme Court shall review a case on appeal, anything in the Judicial Code to the contrary notwithstanding: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the claims of the Chippewa Indians of Minnesota under the said Jurisdictional Act of May 14, 1926, shall be reviewed by the Supreme Court of
