State AG asks to remove CA from City of Temecula's Lawsuit against Pechanga

The state attorney general's office has asked a federal judge to remove California as a party to Temecula's lawsuit against the Pechanga Band of LuiseƱo Indians, which is well known to have violated the civil and human rights of 25% of its membership.

U.S. District Court Judge Dale S. Fischer will consider the state's request, as well as a motion by the tribe to dismiss the suit, at an April 11 hearing in Los Angeles.

Temecula sued the tribe in October in an effort to force it to pay the city for the effect the Pechanga Resort & Casino has on municipal services and infrastructure.

The tribe's lawyers contend that the court can't hear the matter because Pechanga has sovereign immunity.

The suit names then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, current Gov. Jerry Brown, who has accepted almost $1 million from gaming tribes, and the state Gambling Control Commission as "real parties of interest," meaning they would benefit from the suit even though Temecula is the plaintiff.

Smokey, the other day I ran into a friend of mine from the tribe and I pointed out some of the ways our rights were violated and how tribal law and the band's constitution were also violated when we were kicked out.

She said, "I don't understand politics so I don't get involved in those things."

She sure would if her family happened to be next and she would learn real fast that it is important to be informed.

The thing is with some of these people is that they sometimes believe their elders who are not always dishonest but are also misinformed about our disenrollment.

But this stick your head in the sand attitude is what is going to be the downfall of other families if they don't watch out because if it can happen to us, it can happen to them.

'AAMOKAT, IT'S SO SAD THAT THAT THE MEMBERSHIP REALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT POLITICS BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST ONE. JUST GO ALONG AND COLLECT THERE PERCAP AND LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE. DON'T THEY EVEN REALIZE THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN TO THEM JUST AS EASY AS IT DID TO US? MAYBE THEY'RE AFAID OF WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO THEM IF THE SPEAK OUT. BUT THEY DON'T HAVE TO SPEAK OUT ALONE. THEY CAN START A MOVEMENT WITHIN THE MEMBERSHIP TO RIGHT THIS WRONG THAT IS GOING ON AND FINALLY RECOGNIZE HOW THE MACARRO'S AND HIS HENCHMEN ARE BRING DOWN THE TRIBE. BE CLEAR, NOT EVERYONE IN THE MEMBERSHIP IS AFAID OF THE MACARRO THE JUST HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO FIGHT THESE SOB RAT BASTARDS BEFORE IT COMES BACK AND BITES THEM IN THE A--.
