Huntington Beach developer accused of failing to rebury Indian remains in a timely fashion

According to the Orange County Register, the California Coastal Commission said Brightwater Hearthside Homes may have violated the law when they failed to report a particular ancient human remain during construction grading. Brightwater Hearthside Homes officials may have also mishandled ancient American Indian remains on the Bolsa Chica mesa site where they plan to build a 300-home community.
