WINDOW ROCK< April 10, 2014
On Tuesday, Window Rock District Court Judge Carol Perry ordered a second hearing regarding Naize's request for a TRO. The next hearing is set for April 16 at 9 a.m.
Naize's request for a TRO comes after the 12 Council delegates voted 12-0 on April 4 to place him on paid leave.
In her order, Perry requested both parties to submit briefs on the plaintiff/petitioner's (Naize) motion to disqualify the Navajo Nation Department of Justice attorneys for representing the 12 Council members and tribal employee, and the defendant/respondent's (12 Council members and employee) request to dismiss the case because of “subject matter litigation.”
