Gabe Galanda Quoted by AP re Lawyer-fueled Tribal Civil Wars

The Associated Press quotes Gabe Galanda regarding Indian lawyer/lobbyist-fueled tribal civil wars.

Tribal affairs attorney Gabriel Galanda said some lawyers are exploiting casinos to run up fees.


"It's all by design, lawyers and lobbyists taking advantage of a void of law and order in Indian country," said Galanda, who represented an ousted faction of the Paskenta tribe. "This is happening in too many places, too frequently. I guarantee you that Chukchansi is not the last of them."

Gabe has recently offered spoken and written commentary regarding Indian lawyer ethics in the tribal civil war context.
