In the ongoing dispute over ownership of the Valles Caldera (which I challenge anyone to dispute is the most beautiful place in New Mexico) the federal government has filed a motion arguing that Jemez Pueblo abandoned its claim to title due to a 12-year statute of limitations, according to this story by Justin Horwath in the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Last year the 10th Circuit reversed the dismissal of Jemez Pueblo’s lawsuit, as I wrote about here. You can also see my previous coverage of this lawsuit here, here, and here. I have little doubt it will be heading to the 10th Circuit again one day.
