Decision in tribal enrollment case still unknown
WEBSTER—The decision for the St. Croix Tribe of Chippewa enrollment case involving the appeal of five individuals to gain back their tribal enrollment remains unknown.
According to St. Croix tribal attorney Jeffrey Cormell, the acting judge on the case, Stockbridge-Munsee tribal judge Candace Des Armo Coury, has pushed back the deadline on making her decision in the case until Monday, Aug. 8.
This is the second time Des Armo Coury has pushed back her decision since both parties rested on Monday, July 25. Attorney Cormell stated that he has been told that Des Armo Coury is a full time judge for the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Indians and her duties for their court has kept her from issuing the decision for the case.
