Arenas v. United States

In Arenas v. United States, 322 U.S. 419, 432, 64 S.Ct. 1090, 1095 (1944), it was said: "But courts are not to determine questions of Indian land policy, nor can the Secretary on grounds of policy deprive an allottee of any rights he may have acquired in his allotment. To separate questions of right from questions of policy requires judicial examination of any well pleaded allegation of the complaint and of any grounds advanced for refusal of the patent."
