U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) Fletcher, et al. v. United States
$ 34,840
William Fletcher Complaint contained four claims: (1) that the government’s regulations violated their First, Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment rights to vote in Osage tribal elections and to participate in the Osage Tribe’s government; (2) that the government breached its trust responsibilities by (a) eliminating plaintiffs’ right to participate or vote in Osage tribal elections, and (b) allowing headrights to be alienated to persons not of Osage blood; (3) that the government’s failure to manage the Tribe’s assets, coupled with the government’s inability to keep Osage headrights from passing into the hands of those who are not of Osage blood, constituted a Fifth Amendment taking; and (4) that federal regulations restricting plaintiffs’ right to participate in tribal government constituted illegal agency action pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act, 5 U.S.C. § 706. Request for fees denied. Court awarded costs because Plaintiff was a prevailing party and the "substantially justified" criteria doesn't apply to costs. Plaintiffs have appealed to the 10th Circuit.

U.S. Department of Justice Null United States v. 269 Acres, More or Less, Located in Beaufort County, South Carolina
$ 84,757
William D. Trask, Jr. The United States filed this case in 2016 to impose a permanent restrictive easement over 269.22 acres of land located in Beaufort, South Carolina, which the landowners had owned in fee simple since 1955. The easement restricts land development in the flight path of jets in and out of the adjacent U.S. Marine Corps Air Station. The court found that the government’s pre-litigation actions and litigation positions were not substantially justified because it had taken three different stances on valuation for determination of just compensation for the property.
