Court puts hold on disenrollments within Nooksack Tribe

Filed Under: Law | National | Politics
More on: disenrollment, nooksack, tribal courts, washington
   

The appellate court for the Nooksack Tribe of Washington has put a hold on disenrollment proceedings against 306 people.

The court stopped the proceedings in order to hear claims raised by attorney Gabe Galanda. The 306 people say they are being unfairly targeted for having mixed Indian-Filipino heritage.

Two council members are among those facing removal. However, Michelle Roberts and Rudy St. Germain were removed for allegedly missing too many meetings.

The meetings took place at an odd time -- three consecutive days over the Martin Luther King Day holiday weekend. When Roberts and St. Germain didn't show up in person, Chairman Bob Kelly replaced them with people who support the disenrollment effort, The Bellingham Herald reported.

Turtle Talk has posted documents from the Nooksack Court of Appeals case, Lomeli v. Kelly and Roberts v. Kelly.
