In our disenrollment, the tribe refused to allow us attorney representation in either our meetings with the disenrollment committee, nor in our appeal. Hey, as long as our Congress, keeps letting corruption run amok, why not see how far you can take it?
Apparently, WHIPPING THEIR ASSES in court, goes against what the Nooksack tribe determines as, "reflecting poorly on the proper administration of justice".
From TURTLE TALK:
Whenever the Tribal Council becomes aware that any advocate’s behavior and/or practices reflect so poorly upon the proper administration of justice before the Nooksack Tribal Court of the Nooksack Indian Tribe, the Tribal Council may revoke any privileges provided to such person(s) and bar them from further practice in any administrative tribunal before the Nooksack Indian Tribe or proceeding before the Nooksack Tribal Court. Tribal Council may hold such hearings as necessary to ensure that such behavior and/or practices are proven; or, as may be necessary to correct such past behavior and/or practices.
In the judicial order above, the court described 16-28:
On the same date, February 24, 2016, the Nooksack Tribal Council enacted Resolution #16-28, barring Gabriel Galanda and other attorneys in the Galanda Broadman law firm from practicing in the Nooksack Tribal Court and from engaging in business on Nooksack Tribal lands.
The court ordered the tribal defendants to produce an affidavit describing the process offered the Galanda firm before issuing 16-28, on the theory that the Indian Civil Rights Act requires at least some process.
