On August 25, 1980, the US District Court for the Southern District of Georgia (per Judge B. Avant Edenfield) denies the People Organized for Equal Rights (POER) motion (see timeline entry for August 1, 1980) and enters a permanent injunction against efforts to occupy lands at Harris Neck, Georgia, ruling, “Title has vested in the United States and cannot be returned to the original owners without Congressional authorization. There is no remedy for defendants in the courts.”
