Ninth Circuit Affirms Denial of Relief in Pala Band Disenrollment Appeal

Here is the opinion in Aguayo v. Jewell.

An excerpt:

This appeal analyzes whether the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) acted arbitrarily and capriciously when it concluded that, according to tribal law, it had no authority to intervene in a tribal membership dispute, in which more than 150 people were disenrolled from the Pala Band of Mission Indians (Pala Band or Band). We conclude that it did not, and affirm the decision of the district court.
