ruling on TRO by U.S. District Court

January 29, 2009

Based on the assurance of the United States Attorney Pamela DeRusha who represents the Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Judge Justin Quackenbush denied the Temporary Restraining Order today in U.S. District Court.

The assurances were made in a recorded hearing before the judge.  They provide that no adverse action would be taken by the United States and the BIA that could interfere with the RV Park pending the outcome of the dispute.

The RV Park is committed to resolve this matter with the BIA and Allottees by negotiating a settlement if at all possible. The court hearing today provides the RV Park with status quo throughout the litigation.  Any changes would require a specific motion brought before Judge Justin Quakenbush.
