Abstract: Let $ L$ be a quadratic imaginary field, inert at the rational prime $ p$. Fix an integer $ n\ge 3$, and let $ \mathcal M$ be the moduli space (in characteristic $ p$) of principally polarized abelian varieties of dimension $ n$ equipped with an action by $ \mathcal {O}_L$ of signature $ (1,n-1)$. We show that each Newton stratum of $ \mathcal M$, other than the supersingular stratum, is irreducible.
