Mississippi Band of Choctaws chief sues Tribal Council


Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians Tribal Chief Phyliss Anderson has filed a lawsuit against the 17-member Tribal Council over a policy amendment that she says unlawfully interferes with her executive authority.

"At the April meeting, I objected to the policy amendments that unlawfully interfered with my authority and responsibility as chief and that required information about employee personnel actions to be turned over to the Council Committee on Human Resources, Training and Development on a quarterly basis," Anderson said in a statement. "I was elected by the Choctaw people to lead this tribe as the tribal chief, and I take that responsibility seriously. I also believe it is my duty to protect the powers and and duties of the office of the chief and to protect the interests of tribal employees who work to provide necessary programs and services for the benefit of our tribal members."
