  • High court rejects Blackfeet housing suit

    By Kahrin Deines
    Helena, Montana (AP)

    The U.S. Supreme Court has decided not to examine whether the federal government bears responsibility for toxic, mold-infested homes built on the Blackfeet Reservation with federal money, closing one route to restitution for American Indians who say the houses sickened their families with asthma, sinusitis and other ailments.

    The court recently denied a petition to hear the case known as Marceau v. Blackfeet Housing. Martin Marceau of Browning charged that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development had a “trust responsibility” to ensure that money it distributed for reservation housing was used to build safe homes.
