Noted Native rights attorney Gabriel Galanda reports on his Facebook page:
Nooksack is reviving several Nooksack 306 lawsuits filed SEVEN years ago and seeking dismissal for "want of prosecution."
Why weren't they prosecuted?
Because the Tribal Council fired Chief Judge Susan Alexander before she could rule against them;
READ WHAT The National American Indian Court Association had to say about that
They disbarred Galanda Broadman; denied business licenses to several other law firms;
"REJECTED" the family's pro se papers; installed tribal lawyer Ray Dodge as "judge" to gate-keep and then the Federal Government had to pay $35,000 in claims for JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT;
And they cordoned off the Tribal Court with armed tribal police to quite literally prevent access to justice.
