Construction Continues at Site of Ancestral Remains
FALLBROOK, CALIFORNIA - The San Luis Rey Band of Mission Indians went to Vista Superior Court of San Diego County this morning to seek a Temporary Restraining Order to stop construction at Tom-Kav.
The hearing has been delayed for another day.
The reason for the one-day delay is the original judge assigned to the case disclosed that one of the party's involved in the construction is doing work for some in his family as well. Since there is a conflict of interest, the case has been reassigned to another judge who needed time to adequately review the legal briefs filed.
Tom-Kav is the construction site where early last Thursday, in the dark, construction crews drove bulldozers through an area where 19 ancestral remains were known to have been.
Construction on the site involves grading of a boulevard that will lead to a future satellite campus of Palomar College that will be called Horse Ranch Creek Road. The future boulevard is located at the site northeast of the Interstate15 and SR Highway 76.
The road will be owned and maintained by the County of San Diego. Palomar College is funding the road's construction.
