San Pasqual - I have received numerous texts, FB messages and phone calls . . . and I KNOW that it is very difficult not to have any news or any answers . . . but please understand this is completely in the hands of Judge Battaglia. Let me put this to you in a different context . . . the San Pasqual Indians are totally unique in California history . . . and our case is one of first impression [meaning, there is no other case in the history of the U.S. that we can look to for any guidance - and that is for a whole other set of reasons]. Any of you are always welcome to make an inquiry, but I ASSURE you the minute that I hear ANYTHING, I will be the first to let you know . . . . . no matter what the outcome.
I learned quite some time ago that Reservations are just like any other provincial town, anywhere . . . . where one idiot can make an ignorant statement, and then that statement is passed along, and then through a tin can, connected to a string - the story on the other side is . . . . [make it anything that you want]. I can only assure you that the rumors that you are hearing are either completely misguided or calculated to lead you into a frenzied rabbit hole - a beehive of stressed out rubbish! UNLESS YOU HEAR DIRECTLY FROM ME, then it is all nonsense chatter . . . it is nothing more than a small town's gossip and it is without merit.
Everything has been submitted to Judge Battaglia, effective July 17, 2018 . . . . and now we wait. [and, no there is no time frame in which Judge Battaglia must provide his ruling - NONE].
