    Agua Caliente tribe sues Riverside County over tax

    The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians has asked a federal judge to stop Riverside County from collecting a tax on Indian land leaseholders the tribe has long viewed as illegal, arguing the tax is paid by local leaseholders and spent on services in other communities.
    The lawsuit is the second to come out of the Coachella Valley in the past 10 months related to federal regulations that took effect a year ago. It’s also the second time the Agua Caliente tribe has sued Riverside County over a tax known as possessory interest. The earlier lawsuit ended in 1971 with a defeat for the tribe.
