I-Team: Latest on possible litigation between Palm Springs and Section 14 group

The City of Palm Springs is moving forward with what it's calling "equity efforts" for Section 14.

Section 14 is an area of land next to downtown Palm Springs that is part of the Agua Caliente Indian Reservation. The City of Palm Springs participated in clearing Section 14 in the 1960s after the various landowners had evicted mostly minority residents to make way for future development.

I-Team Investigator John White takes an in-depth look at newly-released correspondence between the two sides. He talks with Palm Springs Mayor, Jeffrey Bernstein, and the attorney for the Section 14 group, Areva Martin.
