Colville Tribes' chief judge resigns amid controversy
Colville Tribal Court Chief Judge Scot Stuart resigned his position May 10, following an order by the Colville Tribal Court of Appeals related to a complaint filed by court staff and a Tribal Court practitioner in November 2015, the Tribe stated in a press release last week.
Chief Justice Anita Dupris penned the order, which recommended a bill of impeachment to remove the judge, the issuance of a public censure and a fine. It also required the judge to attend trainings, among other things. The public censure was issued Friday.
