An attorney representing numerous members of the Three Affiliated Tribes who say they were wrongfully terminated after the Nov. 2 election, made a statement Wednesday afternoon regarding the controversy that has brewed now for more than a month.
Roger Bird Bear said there are three issues to this controversy; illegal firings, election fraud and illegal installations. There are at least 107 people affected by this, according to Bird Bear, perhaps up to 125.
In addition, a lawsuit was filed against new tribal chairman Tex Hall and others in district court in New Town Nov. 12 for $10.7 million seeking $100,000 for each of the “wrongfully terminated” employees.
In his statement Wednesday quoting tribal resolutions under the constitution and bylaws of the Three Affiliated Tribes, Bird Bear said the wrongfully-fired employees were never given their rights.
