LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Tribal and local officials filed a lawsuit against the state regarding disputes over the disturbance of an ancient American Indian village and burial ground. The state Department of Transportation's work on a bridge construction yard stopped in 2003 after officials discovered human remains in the area. More than 350 skeletal remains and numerous Indian artifacts were eventually found at the site, where Lower Elwha Klallam members had lived in a village called Tse-whit-zen. The state of Washington has agreed to pay more than $17 million to settle the disputes. (Aug-14-06) [SEATTLE POST INTELLIGENCER]
