Appeals judges rule in favor of Tribe


Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Appeals judges have ruled that several members can be removed from membership rolls, but the attorney representing those people said Tribal officials have more work to do before that can happen.

Paula Fisher, who is representing 233 living and deceased Tribal members facing disenrollment, said their cases will be remanded to the Tribal office of administrative hearings and that “the Tribe will have the burden of proving by clear and convincing evidence that each of these Tribal members received their membership as a result of a mistake which is defined as willful, wanton or reckless disregard of a known risk of harm.”
