|Chap. 714||Proviso. Time limitation.|
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
the United States on appeal from the Court of Claims, anything in the Judicial Code, or amendments thereto, notwithstanding: Provided, That in any case heretofore decided by the Court of Claims said appeal shall be perfected by either party to the controversy within one year from the passage of this joint resolution, and an appeal shall be taken in all cases hereafter decided by the Court of Claims within three months from and after the date final judgment or decree is entered therein in the Court of Claims. 1
