Snoqualmie Tribe Sue in State Court to Enjoin Muckleshoot Development

Download petition here.

A Land Use Petition was filed in King County Superior Court on May 27, 2016 on behalf of the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe seeking to vacate a 2003 state environmental determination and 2016 Development Agreement that paves the way for a hotel expansion and residential development on an ancient Snoqualmie burial ground adjacent to Snoqualmie Falls, which is owned by the Muckleshoot Tribe. The Petition also asserts that the development imposes an unconstitutional burden on Snoqualmie tribal members’ constitutional right to religious freedom.
