County seeks to intervene in Wappos' bid for tribal land

Author:

Sonoma County is trying to intervene in the case of an Alexander Valley Indian tribe suing the federal government to restore its tribal land. Sonoma County leaders are worried the Mishewal Wappo tribe will build a casino or other project that violates the county’s land-use law. A hearing in the case was scheduled Monday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, but Judge James Ware postponed it until March 8.
