["Two Northern California Indian tribes scored a victory in their effort to restore ancestral fisheries when a court gave the go-ahead for a plan to revive the Trinity River's once-thriving salmon population.... The court said a deal the tribes reached with government agencies could be put in place, rejecting objections from a Central Valley water agency that benefits from diverted Trinity flows.... The decision reverses most of a ruling in January by U.S. District Judge Oliver Wanger in Fresno." San Francisco Chronicle (July 14, 2004) 1.]
