County seeks to rejoin Mishewal Wappo Tribe recognition case
Wednesday, October 17, 2012
Filed Under: Law | Recognition
More on: 9th circuit, california, mishewal wappo, termination
 
Napa County in California will ask the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to rejoin the Mishewal Wappo Tribe federal recognition lawsuit.

A federal judge removed the county from the tribe's suit last month, citing a lack of "significant protectable interests." The county has until October 28 file an appeal.

"Napa County has significant, protectable economic interests at stake in the Wappo suit, because the relief sought by the plaintiff could impact our Agricultural Preserve, our comprehensive land-use regulations and our quality of life here," supervisor Keith Caldwell said in a statement to The Napa Valley Register.

The tribe was listed for termination in an act of Congress. The lawsuit accuses of the federal government of failing to comply with the law.

The tribe and the Obama administration are in settlement talks.
