CAMP 4 TRUST DECISION REVERSED

FEB 19 2019

On February 13, 2019, U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Wilson found the 2017 decision to take the land known as “Camp 4” into trust for the Santa Ynez Band of Mission Indians was unlawful.

The plaintiff's attorney Barry Cappello, with Cappello & Noel LLP Trial Lawyers in Santa Barbara, released a statement with the announcement.

Camp 4 property was purchased by the Santa Ynez Band of Mission Indians in 2010, and is comprised of over 1,400 acres in rural Santa Ynez Valley. The land had been dedicated to low-density agriculture under a specific community plan that took several years to develop after many meetings with Santa Ynez Valley residents and under California’s Williamson Act.
