Trial over troubled reservation trailer park continues
Testimony continued in the federal government's case against a trailer park on the Torres Martinez Desert Cahuilla Reservation in southern California.

Federal prosecutors were still calling witnesses as of Wednesday. The local Bureau of Indian Affairs superintendent said the park, also known as Duroville, should be closed due to safety and health hazards.

Harvey Duro, a tribal member, owns the 40-acre park. It is home to upwards of 5,000 people, most of them migrant Indian and Hispanic workers from Mexico and Central America.

The BIA says Duro has failed to make improvements to the facility. But his attorney said the agency doesn't have clear standards or guidelines for mobile home parks.
