Judge rules 'biased' tribal council denied disbarred lawyer due process


A Nooksack judge ruled Monday that the tribal council — which she called “plainly biased” and given to “extreme tactics” — did not afford Seattle attorney Gabriel Galanda due process when it disbarred him last month.

In doing so, Judge Susan Alexander asserted her independence, and potentially left herself open to being fired. She pointedly noted in a previous order that she was “simply a tribal employee without term or contract.”
