Couple win access to their home - for now


A couple who run a Native American-led retreat center and farm in rural Sandoval County have obtained a restraining order against the Pueblo of San Felipe that allows Larry and Deborah Littlebird to use – for now – the rutted dirt road that leads to their property.

It is the latest step in what has been a messy, yearslong battle that went all the way to the state Supreme Court. Justices almost ended the fight last month when they ruled that the Littlebirds cannot sue to get access to the road because tribes have federal immunity from almost all lawsuits.
