Cherokee court hears arguments in impeachment lawsuit


Two days of hearings in the Cherokee Supreme Court wrapped up today, with the three-justice panel now charged with deciding whether to order a halt to impeachment proceedings against Principal Chief Patrick Lambert until the court can come to a final decision on the lawsuit challenging Tribal Council’s actions.

Today’s two hours of arguments focused on whether the Grand Council of enrolled members that Lambert held Tuesday, April 18, was a legitimately called Grand Council and whether the vote taken there to kill Tribal Council’s efforts to impeach Lambert should carry the force of law.
