Whereas by the Special Jurisdictional Act approved July 3, 1926 (44 Stat. L. 807), the claims of the Crow Tribe of Indians of Montana and any band thereof against the United States were referred to the Court of Claims "with right of appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States," it being the intention that both parties should have a 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 cause 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 Crow Tribe of Indians and any band thereof under the said Jurisdictional Act approved July 3, 1926, shall be reviewed on the whole record by the Supreme Court of the United States on appeal from the Court of Claims, anything in the Judicial Code or amendments thereto notwithstanding: Provided, That said appeal shall be perfected by either party to the controversy within one year from the passage of this Act.
Approved, August 15, 1935.
