Best Answer

The breakaway territory of Georgia saw immense conflict back in 2008. While Georgia attained its independence after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, pro-Russian groups in South Ossetia and Abkhazia declared their independence from Georgia. This led to government troops entering both regions to restore order. It also led to a Russian invasion, which saw five days of war between Russian and Georgian forces. While an uneasy peace was secured, Russia continues to occupy both regions in the name of protecting its ethnic citizens.

Did the US Supreme Court case Worcester v. Georgia legally open Cherokee lands to mining?

No. The case had nothing to do with mining.Worcester v. Georgia (1832) addressed a Georgia law requiring whites living in Cherokee territory to obtain a permit from the state. When seven missionaries refused to follow the law, they were convicted and sentenced to four years hard labor.When the appeal reached the Supreme Court, Chief Justice Marshall stated the United States relationship to the Cherokee was that of two separate nations, giving the federal government the sole right of negotiation with the Native American nations, and barring Georgia from taking action against them. Marshall further opined that the government did not have the right of possession of Native American land, nor dominion over their laws, short of military conquest or legal purchase.According to Marshall, the Cherokee weren't bound by Georgia state law while in their own territory, and Georgia couldn't make laws regarding use of their territory.He also ordered Georgia to release the missionaries, which it did.

Who was the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court who ruled that Cherokee territory was not subject to state law?

Fourth Chief Justice John Marshall (1801-1835) made that declaration in the Supreme Court's decision for Worcester v. Georgia, (1832).

Georgia, 35 US 515 (1832)
