Federal court spurns tribal claim of ownership of area now encompassing Valles Caldera NPres

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A federal judge has rejected an effort by a Native American tribe to reclaim Valles Caldera National Preserve.


U.S. District Judge James Browning recently issued a sealed opinion denying Jemez Pueblo's claim that its aboriginal property rights were never extinguished. In a court filing that summarized his findings, the judge said the federal government had clear title to the land and the case was being dismissed.
