On the first day of its fall term, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal from the Sac and Fox Nation and Jim Thorpe’s sons to move the athlete’s remains back to Oklahoma.

On Monday, the high court left a ruling in place that ordered Thorpe’s body to remain in the Pennsylvania town named after the Olympic gold medalist. His two surviving sons and the tribe had wanted to move Thorpe back to Native American land in Oklahoma.
