A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit seeking to block a northern Wisconsin tribe from barricading roads on its reservation, saying the nontribal land owners who brought the action didn't have a case under federal law.
A Native American tribe and a northern Wisconsin town have reached an agreement under which the tribe will temporarily reopen four barricaded roads that are the subject of a decadelong dispute and a recent lawsuit.
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation properly used eminent domain to obtain property from a Fox Valley church, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.

The village of Mount Pleasant has reached a deal to buy out four property owners who are part of a lawsuit accusing the village of wrongly declaring thousands of acres of farmland in Foxconn's path blighted.
A group of homeowners filed a new lawsuit against Mount Pleasant on Tuesday, challenging the village's decision in June to declare thousands of acres of farmland in Foxconn's path blighted.
As Foxconn Technology Group officially marked the start on Thursday of work on its $10 billion factory in Mount Pleasant, fears swirled that local officials were moving to unleash a legal means of forcing homeowners to make way for the technology giant: eminent domain.
The property is idyllic. It consists of two parcels in a cove on the St. Croix River along the Wisconsin-Minnesota border where the river widens and flattens to form Lake St. Croix.
