This is a glimmer of hope for the longtime struggle of San Pasqual people fighting for their proper place. The District Court has been reversed.
The crux of the issue:
The district court didn't properly determine when the plaintiffs' claims began, which is important for determining if they missed the time limit for filing their complaint.

The district court suggested different dates for when the time limit began, but didn't clearly explain why. Additionally, the district court didn't clarify if the denial of the blood degree request was the only "final agency action" or if returning the plaintiffs' enrollment applications also counted.
The court cannot determine when the plaintiffs' claims began without this information. The court has to send the case back to the district court to make a clear decision on these issues.
The plaintiffs' other arguments are not addressed in this ruling, and their request to strike some information is not relevant anymore.
Creator, please, give these people some good karma.
