Senator Orrin Hatch, (R) the senior Senator from Utah sent a letter to the lead plaintiff, of Felter v. Kempthorne, Oranna Felter, telling her the mixed-blood Uinta's have no legal rights or grounds to be provided reparations! In other words he doesn't believe the terminated Uinta deserve to have their federal recognition restored! Hatch states in this letter the fact that he has no intentions to introduce any legislation to repeal the Ute Partition Act! (Read Hatch's Letter here)
