Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians Chairman Mark Macarro and Andrew Masiel Sr. a tribal councilman, refused to respond to a complaint in the Case of Liska V. Macarro.
Macarro and Masiel, who were served had 21 days to respond to the suit of Joe Liska, son of Pechanga member Fred Magee and brother to two sisters, Mary Bear Magee and Gloria Wright, who were instrumental in having 300 people ripped from the tribe via disenrollments. This could result in a default judgement for Mr. Liska.
Tribal Council members Russell "I'm a White Man who tried to break away from Pechanga" Murphy, Marc Calac, Mark Luker and John Magee have avoided the process server, thus far and the judge, Irma Gonzalez has granted Joe Liska more time.
Mr. Liska, who was banished from the reservation where his father is buried, is asking that the banishment be lifted and his RIGHTFUL back trust proceeds be restored.
