Editorial: Don't appeal Kennewick ruling
Facebook Twitter Email

The federal government shouldn't "waste" more time and money to appeal the Kennewick Man decision, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says in an editorial today.

"While decisions at this level of the courts can always be appealed, the government shouldn't bother," the paper writes.

The paper praises a federal magistrate's decision to allow the 9,000-year-old man to be studied. The Clinton administration had ordered the remains be returned to five tribes.
