In a case that could pave the way for another Indian casino, the Mishewal Wappo Indians of Alexander Valley are suing U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to regain their tribal status.

A conference in the case is set Feb. 1 in federal court in San Jose.

The lawsuit seeks a court order to restore the Wappos' tribal lands along the Russian River northeast of Healdsburg.
