Litigation Update
On April 14, 2009, the Six Nations Elected Council made a motion to return to the 1995 Six Nations vs. Canada and Ontario Litigation and to continue with the original lawyers being Blake, Cassels & Graydon.

Since, 2009 to 2011, the L&R office continued to work with the lawyers to identify and catalogue additional prevalent historical documentation to the Discovery process and produced an additional 5,000 documents.

In July and September 2012, Six Nations delivered to Canada and Ontario a Request to Admit (RTA) Documents relating to specific documents being identified and a Request to Admit Facts describing various persons identified in certain relevant documents.

In July, August, 2012 and February, 2013, Canada and Ontario responded to the specifics of the RTA which verifies the authenticity of documents and the people involved, including what positions they held and when, but Canada is refusing to Admit the Facts establishing any wrong (past) doing; thus placing Six Nations to provide strict facts proving that those individuals committed fraud, theft or negligence in depriving Six Nations of its lands and money.
