Pala Chairman ROBERT SMITH SUED for Breach of Fiduciary Duty in Hiring BIA Niece's Law Firm

We  wrote about this situation last month, in which an attorney, Sara Dutschke Setshwaelo, fired off a nasty cease and desist letter, followed by a reply by attorney Andrew Twietmeyer who asked for her credentials to act in Pala's interests as attorney of record.   Crickets chirped, which helped lead to this lawsuit

20: Plaintiff is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that Defendant Smith did
not seek or obtain the approval of the United States Secretary of the Interior to hire and pay Dentons
22) Plaintiff is further informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that most, if not
all of the attorneys fees paid to Dentons and/or DOES 11 through 20 were for legal services that
benefited Defendant Smith's individual interests in exacting retribution on PBMI political rivals;
intimidating would-be political rivals and the PBMI electorate;
23) Indeed, Mr. Pink is informed and believes, and on that basis alleges, that a substantial
portion of the attorneys fees Defendant Smith caused to be paid to Dentons and/or DOES 11-20
were for legal research, advice, and counsel to Defendant Smith on his retaliatory disenrollment of more that 160 members of the PBMI which disenrollment Defendant Smith purported to justify by brazenly and unilaterally changing a settled historical determination of the Cupeno Indian blood quantum of Margarita Britten (1856-1925).

Denton's attorney is the niece of BIA Director Amy Dutschke.... just sayin'

Here is the lawsuit:

This is great news ! But could Robert Smith claim immunity ? The California Supreme court recently declared criminals like this above the law.

I thought the Supreme Court just depublished, not declared anyone above the law. There were already laws on the books that kept Cosentino in the WIN column...

Awesome, what department is this assigned to in San Diego?

Great work. Maybe they will finally get the notion that the 6 people who unjustly sit (and have not been sworn in) on the Executive Committee are not the General Council, the General Council is every voting member of the tribe. The EC seems to think they can do whatever they want without the approval of the General Council (The Whole Tribe), and Robert Smith has been choosing to do what he pleases for 25 years now, it needs to end. This dictator has got to go, he has destroyed the tribe and ruined the people. He has let others come in that have helped him destroy the tribe. When he goes, Pala can heal and the people can once again live and grow without oppression.

Will not give up said...

Hopefully this is a start of the walls of his castle (that he has built with the tribes money) start tumbling down.

anonymous said...

Praying this is the start that will open all Pala members eyes and see what Robert Smith really is. This man has a deep hatred for certain families and his cruelty knows no end.

Anonymous said...

Robert has probably already forged all the necessary documents giving him permission to hire Sara D. It will be interesting to see how he forges the name of the Secretary of the Interior. Auntie Amy is probably taking care of that part of it. What's that. Amy Dutschke is retiring!!! Really, she is signing all of the fee to trust applications before she retires? Wonder if she has figured out which tribe, or not, Robert Smith represents. I hope the OIG, Kevin Washburn, the FBI, the SOI and congress are taking a close look at Amy before she rides off into the sunset (holding hands with Robert Smith). We should start a pool to see if she goes to work for Auburn or for Pala. They both have outstanding BIA retirement programs.

It is very clear in this situation that it is the tribe (finally) that is the sovereign entity and not Robert Smith although he is big enough to be any nation he wants. The tribe is not being sued. The suit is for the benefit of the tribe. It is time to end the reign of terror or is that the sovereign of terror. Thank you your Honor for seeing through this masquerade of deception and corruption. What's that? You want this investigated for criminal intent as well. Possible RICO violations. Sure thing. Again, Thank you your Honor.

An audit should be done of all tribal funds to see if he paid any involved that will not be in the records they turn over. I'm sure somehow they will try and cover this up like they do everything else with a little help from thier BIA friends

violations or claims against sarah,should be made to state Bar,before she retires,or runs.

Amy is probably in her office now shredding away.....this lawsuit will have many people scrambling to cover things up and should get a lot of press. Send a copy to Dateline, 60 minutes, Anderson Cooper and any news agency you can think of. This is criminal activity is it not? Misappropriation of funds? It's just the start of his crumbling empire. Someone should be watching the books at the Casino...someone will try and get as much cash out before the shit hits the fans.

Wait a minute wait a minute now what lawyer is going to defend on this case?

Dentons is the largest law firm in the world. Do you guys really think they are just going to roll over? Of course Sara will defend the case. She has billions behind her. Money talks, the truth can walk. You all still don't know what you're up against...so sad. You lose, bye bye. Expect a counter suit shortly. Get ready to mortgage your homes and property if you really want to go the distance. In the end we win and you lose and you get nothing. Bye Bye Brittains.

Anonymous said...

Bye bye Brittains?? This case has nothing to do with the family..stop counting us as a whole. Just because 1 person from a family attacks Robert does not mean it's the entire family. Robert needs to stop punishing the wrong people because of his hatred for certain members of that family.

Dentons is probably still trying to figure out who the hell Sara shitswallow is and how did they get stuck with such an idiot. This is an easy one for Dentons. Robert Smith and Sara S misrepresented the status of pala to Dentons so the burden of duty will fall back on Robert and Sara. Dentons will probably testify against them in exchange for dismissal of the case against Dentons. That is what a smart law firm that has made the mistake of hiring a stupid attorney would do. Suits and LA Law 101.

6:54 is pretty snarky guess she hasn't noticed Karma working lately. Not going to mention names but less smirking faces out there now. And it's not your money it belongs to the tribe and yea Brittens are in the tribe in almost every family in Pala. So be careful who you insult.

We won't have to have anymore disenrollments because more that half of the pala members will be in jail with Robert Smith. Yes Robert will rat you out quicker than you can say his name. What is that clause in the revenue allocation plan? oh yes, you cannot receive per cap while in prison. That means there will be plenty of money to pay the Brittens what is owed them.

I sure wish someone would look into Robert Smith's housing scam. The first big issue is why would he charge his fellow members ridiculous prices for their homes. The average cost of a Robert Smith home on pala is twice that of a home off the reservation. There is no land cost associated with the home cost. No permit fees. No utility hook up fees and no sales taxes or other taxes or fees. So why do pala houses cost so much? Is pala a legal lending instution? Is pala licensed to offer mortgages? A pala mortgage binds you to Robert smith for 30 years. he owns you. he has the right to enter your home without permission. Robert Smith can evict you and you lose whatever equity you may have in your home. Robert Smith can decide your successor (one of his friends of course). At the end of 30 grueling years of harassment by Robert smith you own nothing. What a wonderful program.

Right?You say you have the money and the power? You don't have money and power Robert Smith has money and power because he is using YOUR MONEY You won't have shit if you keep letting this crook take what is rightfully the tribal members and not just for Robert. I commend Willy for taking a stand for what is right against this man. He knows this man is corrupt and not afraid to stand up to him like all you others who just worry about your losing per cap.

Robert should not be chairman. He is involved in to many questionable activities. There are so many lawsuits that he is involved with. We need a new chairman that can bring us all together. Starting with the britian situation. Re enroll them.

Reinstatement_Restitution said...

So I am hearing this correctly, that PBMI members are okay with Robert Smith using their money to pay for an attorney that they didn't approve? I guess they don't mind if he uses the Band's attorney for his own legal services and pays for it with their money. Are they also happy that their Chairman is being sued by a member? Or are they just happy that they have a Chairman who is willing to use the money and power of the Band to cover up his wrongdoing?

What kind of people are these that support a Chairman like Robert Smith?

How sad that she feels this way. It is sad that she does not know that side of the family because Alice passed away way too young, heartbraking, and she did not know Her great Grandmother(Great Aunt) Vivienne, both were so wonderful and loving to family. They would have been so upset over all of this. I do not think they are smiling down on them right now, but I do know that they would have loved their grandkids and great grandkids so much. It used to be so different, even though they were very poor, it was always home, family, and love.

You have the power to end this or continue fighting the rest of your days as leaders of the Pala Band.

Anonymous said...

Vivian Banks was one of the fighters to prove that her Grandmother MB was indeed a full blood cupa.I have never known anyone that would fight for something so hard for something that she truly believed was the truth.
If Vivian thought that for one second that Margarita was anything but full blooded cupa , she would have not pushed the way that she did, to prove that MB was full.
She (Vivian was the most HONEST women that ever walked the Lands of the Pala Reservation. And to have her memory and all the work that she endured to prove that her Grandmother was full Cupa flushed down the toilet is a damn shame.
What kind of people are they that say that her word is nothing.
Every living person on this Reservation knew the way Vivian Banks was and what she stood for. And that is honor above all, and would never ever tell so much as a little white lie for anyone. Not even her own.
And that's why I get so upset with the way that people say things like MB was only 1/2 cupa. If Vivian thought that she was only half (MB)she would have left things as they were. And all she did was help prove that MB was full blooded Cupa. Her word and all the Documents posted here are good enough for everyone except for those that are Corrupt and greedy. Grow up EC and face the facts concerning the Britten issue, because we now that she was as Documented 4/4=full.

Very nice post for our Ancestors 9:10 pm.

It will come back on them someday, just mark my words.

The crooked tribal leaders may have succeeded in getting Consentino depublished but the fact remains that the court did recognize that if tribal leaders act out of their capacity they are not protected by sovereignty. Publication of a similar case will probably happen soon anyways. It will sure clear the path for tribes to begin prosecuting tribal leaders who have been hiding behind sovereignty when sovereignty is the right of the tribe not criminals.

Anonymous said...

Your right about Vivian banks. She will always be remembered as a honest woman. She told the truth. I remember when she proved margaretta owlunguish blood line. I remember the look on her face. Its sad how some of her own family (won't mention names) refuse to accept the truth and ran to the money.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, they are literally calling her a liar. Their direct flesh and blood, they are slapping her in the face. How sad to have your own descendants do that to you and your fight. She went through so much to take care of her family, she suffered greatly but still held her head high and made sure her family's truth was known and now her own grandchildren are letting her legacy and hard work seem worthless, but we know what she did and we will not let it be downplayed. We know the truth and we will not throw a blind eye to it even if they choose to be spiteful, hateful, and greedy.

I think that the Federal Court System is going to place some tough sanctions on the Pala Executive Committee for not making some sort action concerning the illegal disenrollments of the Britten Family.
If Robert (Fat Ass) Smith was looking to punish King Freeman and Willy Pink, then why have they not put the others back on the Pala Rolls.Is it because they would have to admit that they were wrong in the first place.
Robert Smith has proven nothing as to the blood degree of MB. So as far as the United States Government is concerned ,MB is still 4/4=full blooded cupa indian.
That's why I think that the Federal Courts will see through the Scams of the EC and will advise the BIA to enforce its 1989 final decision as to the findings of an Investigation into the Father of MB.
If the BIA and the Pala EC refuse to obey a Federal Court Order, then they are going to be held in contempt of a Federal Order and that something that the Pala Band does not need. Because that will hurt the Band as far as Tribal Sovereignty is concerned.
But if that's what they want then so be it. It will for sure open the Tribe up for more losses in the court system for farther decisions to be made, trying to use Sovereignty as a shield.

Really though the government has certain responsibilities to Indians that it must perform. The Feds have failed. The disenrollees have disenfranchised, and the Feds allow corrupt leaders determine who is Indian. Not that I want the Feds to make the call either.

There is a way to manage the separation of sovereign duties, and it doesn't involve supporting corrupt leaders that violate tribal law.

Don't blame Pete. The elections are fixed.The Pala EC discriminates against Britten descendants. It is difficult to muster support when open communication is discouraged . It is impossible to conduct a campaign for office in Pala on Original Pechanga blog.

I sat and waited to be nominated last night at the meeting but I guess no one wanted to openly nominate me.
So now what, where are all the supporters that asked me to run for the EC.I believe that I could have done a better job than the two who are running for the Vice Chairman seat. But I guess the people really don't want change for the Reservation. It will come back to haunt you.
I was willing to give it my best shot, and I thought that I had enough support to do so, but I was wrong.
However I will not give up, and will try again next year.
There are so many things that need fixing on the Reservation and if they are not, then it will get worse than ever.

FERNANDO ORTEGA COULD NOT HAVE KIDS AND EVERYONE IS FULLY AWARE OF THIS. THAT WHY HE LOST HIS FIRST WIFE WHO WAS FROM A RICH FAMILY IN THE PRODUCE BUSINESS AT THAT TIME ON ELVIRA ST. IN LOS ANGLES.
HIS WIFE WANTED CHILDREN AND FERNANDO COULD NOT PRODUCE BECAUSE HE WAS STERILE.
HE CLAIMED ANGLIA AND ERIC AS HIS BECAUSE HIS GIRL FRIEND SAID SO.
HE HOWEVER KNEW THAT THEY WEREN'T HIS BUT LET THEM BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THESE 2 GARCIA /ORTEGA IMPOSTERS.
AND FOR THE SAKE OF THE TRIBE AND ALL THE MEMBERS DO NOT VOTE FOR ERIC FOR VICE CHAIRMAN OF THE PALA BAND OF MISSION INDIANS.HE IS A FAKE AND HAS NO CUPA BLOOD DEGREE.

R&R is so predictable. Pete said I sat and no one nominated me. R&R immediately jumped to "the elections are fixed". You have to be nominated in order to have the election fixed. Is that right R&R? The point is no one nominated Pete, not the fix is in. R&R prefers to be Mr. negative to anything.

Don't cite the fact that you believe the elections from the past were fixed and this one would have been. How can you prove 100% that the elections are fixed. You just hope to stir up people.

Apparently no one on this blog went to the meeting and/or had the courage to nominate Pete. He was there looking for the one brave person who had the courage to put his hat in the ring. Apparently there was not just one brave person to support him. You are sad.

Sad state of affairs. Pete is a man of courage and put his future at risk but yet not one of the tough blogger/talkers on the blog would do that same.

Reinstatement_Restitution said...

Allegations of fixed elections can only be dispelled by independent monitors verifying the procedures, and that the procedures have been followed.

I didn't know that Pete was not nominated until he said so in his comments. I think it would be good to get people stirred up. However, probably about 1% of Pala members read this blog. That is about 10 people in case your math is bad. Not really much to stir.

Pete Trujillo sr. said...

Another reason that I can not go as a write in is because of the required back ground check for all those that are nominated. If this is not done according to Robert, then your name can bot be placed on the ballot. I am guessing that this applies to all incumbents also.

Don't worry Pete, we will continue our fight and we will eventually win, for our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents, and especially our descendants. This is not the end of us, this is the beginning, because the fox is getting more and more pressure and his hole will no longer keep him from being discovered. Robert has been mean enough to our family and the time is coming for things to turn positive for us and for him to be punished for his evilness.

OK then I will run for Vice as a write in.
Can someone spread the word as I can not campaign because of the back ground check.
Lets see all the supporters come out and help do this.
If we pull this off, I believe it will be a first for Pala.

Respectfully Peter Trujillo Sr. - When was the last time you saw a tally for write in candidates. They use write-ins as an excuse to spoil a ballot which means that not only does your vote not count but the votes for the other two candidates do not count either. This could easily throw the election right in to Robert's lap. So before you decide to run as a write-in please consider that you might be causing other candidate votes to be thrown away. Thank you.

Funny how everyone still trying too play by the rules...its a rigged game even if rob was out he wouldnt leave office and everyone would still sit back and do nothing. So stand up and be a TRIBE for once and stand together! You need too realize rob is nothing just a person in a the seat of chairman! Imagine your tribe working together and not having too post as anonymous on a blog just because your scared of what rob might do too you or your family...beleive me its greener on the other side ALOT greener ...time for some change, hes been a great leader (before the money) but now time for someone elses ideas too take you guys too higher grounds.

It's better than having a child molester for Vice Chairman.
And for The sake of our Children get this fake cupa indian off of the School Board. Talking about Eric Ortega Garcia.

Eric Ortega's first act as Vice-Chairman will be to make a motion to disenroll members of the Lugo family. Smith got all the mileage he needed out of their support and now he will take their per capita just like he did to the Britten descendants. That is what Pala members are voting for.This is a shift in power as Smith demonstrates how he rewards
loyalty. It doesn't help that Maxcy has been playing with the boss's daughter. No way to keep these things secret in Pala.

OH BOY, SO HOWARD HAS BEEN DIPPING HIS PEN IN THE COMPANY INK.

You know what's really sad is that the Pala Members all know that Eric and Angelia do belong in Rincon, and why they don't speak up and do something about it is not good for the people in Pala.
It's like giving approval for non Cupa Blood to be a Member of the Band. It just does not sit right with me. Look at the Britten's, Look at all the Documents that prove that they belong in the Band, and the EC turns the other way when it comes to these fake Cupeno Indians.And
welcomes them with open arms.
You People better take a real good look at what is happening on your Reservation and take a stand to correct it or loose it.
It is not right to keep out real descendants and allow fake ones to be enrolled.

Anonymous said...

I'm just a nobody and don't really know how this indian stuff works, but couldn't the 1/16 brittians get legally adopted by one of there 1/4 elders? That way they could get re enrolled through the adoption? I think you can get adopted as an adult.

Anonymous said...

@ 7:15
The 1/16 that the disenrolled Britten family has is enough for enrollment in the Band. However the Executive Committee Members refuse to except the Government Documents that prove this fact. The Federal Government has recommended that the EC re-enroll the Britten Family Members but sour feelings on the part of the EC against some Britten Family Members is stopping the reenrollment of these members.
So it's not that they don't have the blood degree, because they do, 100%.

Adoption is a way to get enrolled, but Robert and the Enrollment Committee have to approve it, he would never approve the adoptions, we did think about this option but also appreciate your thoughts. You never know, someone may come up with a miracle idea that was not approached before. We have tried to look at this from so many angles, we keep getting shut down. Having lots of money to back you up is a powerful thing, there are open hands all over the place that have no problem turning a blind eye on the situation, not to mention the fact that these people are told the disenrollees are violent troublemakers, so outsiders think they are helping the tribe getting rid of troublemakers, they are never told the truth. Plus outsiders think that since Robert is the Chairman and he is voted in (illegally) he must represent the tribe. He has become the tribe, the members no longer have any control over certain parts of their tribal affairs, he handles everything along with Teresa, the instigator. Hopefully this huge mess will get cleaned up soon, before the Casino is shut down by the feds for an audit and the EPA for the sewage problem, in fact if the EPA were really true to the environment and protecting it they would have been looking into this problem and into the discarded chemicals from the Meth Labs there and other weird trash thrown from cars into the bushes. But we all know who the head of the EPA is out in Pala, and she will never do that part of the job, because she only cares about her pocket linings, oh and her status as Robert's special friend. not the environment.

Reinstatement_Restitution said...

The Pala EPA Director is not qualified for the position. She is an anthropologist by education and an educator by profession. Yet another of the shady deals made by Chairman Smith got her the job. She is also the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer. That must be a tough job in a Band bent on destroying its history.

Anonymous said...

Can't wait to get her out and clean up the mess she has made. Her office's newsletter was just pathetic. Did more harm to the environment by using up resources, then helping it.
A PhD holder put that together? Embarrassing.

ROBERT WANTS ERIC AS VICE BECAUSE HOWARS IS BRINGING TO MUCH HEAT TO SMITH AND HE NO LONGER NEEDS HOWARD FOR ANYTHING.SO NOW HE RECUITS A NEW PUPPET WITH ALL THE STRINGS NEEDED TO MAKE ANOTHER MAJOR CHANGE IN PALA WITHOUT THE GENERAL COUNCIL APPROVAL.AND IF YOU VOTE FOR ERIC YOU ARE PLAYING RIGHT INTO SMITHS HANDS.

What's the difference between Eric and Howard? Maxcy followers Robert too. Problem is the weak,greedy people some of which are not even descendants of Warner ranch are fighting over being on the EC and Roberts puppet to get the perks of the job and keeping themselves enrolled. They know if true leaders who cared about the rights and laws of Pala and not their own agenda they might be out and the truth will be told they do not meet the criteria to be enrolled. The council should be 1 person from each family so every family has representation. Isn't that what the 11 had until Rob took away their rights. They had the right idea especially with "THE AUDIT" no choice is a good choice and Robert chooses who sits on the EC everyone knows that. I thought Maxcy was a good guy and was gonna do right for Pala but he turned out to be just like the rest, seduced with the money and perks that Robert gives to be on his side and against the good of the people. Real Native they are, just a crooked and greedy as the rest.

I am britian and I don't want any other families dis enrolled. It is a horrible experience and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. I really wish the EC would just end the feuding and re enroll.

I will probably vote for Pete, he is a better choice for the Tribe, and we all know that he is from Pala.

Okay Pala ,we had a little dinner tonight at the casino with my enrolled family members and a few friend of ours. We talked about the coming elections and have decided that all of my family members are on board and will be voting for Mr. Peter Trujillo sr.
We firmly believe that he will do a better job for Pala than Maxcey has and for sure will be a better choice than Eric Garcia Ortega.
All the rumors as to Eric's blood are true and they should be in Rincon legally. So that in it self changed mine and my families mind as to who would be better suited for Vice Chairman, and that would be
Pete SR. We think that he would listen to the General Membership with an open mind and heart. This is what our Tribe needs for sure.
So if any one ask us our thoughts this is what we are going to tell them. Vote for Pete Trujillo sr. for Vice.
Good Luck Mr. Trujillo sr.

@ PALAREZ, What do you mean "who cares"?
We Tribal Members Care.
And that's why we are going to put Mr. Trujillo sr. in office.
We need to have real and true cupeno Indians on our EC.
And we do not support anyone that's been involved or accused of being a child molester or any imposters.
We do however support true cupeno Indians in our Tribe.
So that being said, take another look around and see how many fake cupeno people are claiming to be real Cupa Warners Indians.

2:52 AM (the bar just closed). Why would anyone ask you your thoughts? They mean nothing in the election.

According to R&R only 1% of Pala's true members read this blog. So you are only talking to 1% of the tribe, good luck getting someone elected.

Why do most of the postings come from your supporters after the bar closes???

@ October 22,
Is that where you were.
You may be right but it's worth trying instead of letting it go and have to deal with the outcome later.
This Tribe needs a chance to heal, and by putting some one that does not belong is not a good start for a healing process.
So that's why we are pushing for Peter to run as a write in.

Has anyone even talked to Pete sr.is he willing to run or are you all just assuming that he will run as a write in?
His opinion does count.
Someone should really go over and talk with him and see what he thinks.

@7:18, yes Pete has come on the blog and said he would run as a write in since no one nominated him. He said that he waited for a nomination, but no one did it, they were probably out-yelled or just too scared. Pete really cares about the tribe and if you read through previous posts you can read Pete's own words.

If you look at the financials that were given out at the meetings concerning the budget you will see in the budget that there was a lot of money paid that was marked only as LEGAL FEES, that's probably what it is for, Dentons. It's on both budgets for the last couple of years, and it only says "For Legal Fee's".

Anonymous said...

At least we know that Pete is not A, Yes Mr. Chairman kind of man and he would not just vote on something just because the rest of the EC voted a certain way on things. We believe that he will listen to the General Membership and decide which way to vote for things that are important for the entire Tribe. This is something that the Pala People need to began the healing process.

Mr. Trujillo has posted a statement as to his running for Vice in the post under the history of Pala post above.

Anonymous said...

Those of you that want to vote for Pete will have to remember that he is running as a write in. Therefore you will have to print his name on the space on the ballot that says write in or the extra space that should be provided on the ballot. His name will have to be spelt the right way so no one can dispute the vote.So if you are going to vote for him it will probably be better if you write his name down as follows and print it like this on the ballot. Peter F. Trujillo sr. and don't forget to put the check mark or the x which ever the ballot requires.

Another problem with the new homes that Robert is charging twice as much for is, say that you paid on you home for 20 years, and then you passed away for whatever reason, and you were the one that the home was given to and it's on a Tribal assignment and no one else in you household is a Tribal Member. Robert and his bunch can kick you spouse out of the home that you paid for because their is no Tribal Members living at the home. So your husband/wife and your kids will have to leave their home, Paid for or not. And that is just so fucked up.
Sorry but I have to go ready for work and will post more latter on today.

One of Eric's old buddy's said that there is a lot of talk about the dis-enrollments that are coming soon.
He says that even though he is friends with Eric he think that Eric is going to motion to dis-enroll the Lugo Family.
That's pretty fucked up for Eric to make such a statement at this time, even though we already new that this was a possibility if Eric was to win, because Eric has to much to lose if he doesn't listen to what Robert wants.

Anonymous said...

According to the next meeting agenda the EC wants the band to give them permission to do some more harm to the Tribe by wanting the GC to give authority to the EC to banish and kick even Tribal Members off the Reservation without getting permission from the General Membership. They want to amend the so called constitution to give them that authority. If the members are smart they will not do this because will not be a good move because we all know how the EC operates and they will use this to dis enroll other families that they want gone. Please use your HEARTS on this one Members, there is nothing wrong with the way it is now, the General Membership SHOULD be the ones to have the say about this issue.
There are only a few things left that the General Membership has the say in, so vote it down or take the chance that the EC does not like you the will use this to get rid of you.FOR SURE. NO DOUBT.VOTE NO.

Why do we need all these lawyers? What do they do and how much does it cost? I got to wonder if they all work for Pala or for Robert. Can't vote without knowing these things. Also we should be able to say yes or no to each one and not have this one size fits all B.S..
