Remember the MCN Supreme Court Chief Justice — Jonodev Chaudhuri? He was the Chief Justice during all those law suits filed by Chief A. D. Ellis against the communities and against the Council, which were all ruled in Ellis’ favor.
Last year, he was appointed as the Acting Commissioner of the National Indian Gaming (NIGC). The Tulsa World reported in today’s edition that Chaudhuri, pending Senate confirmation, would become the Commissioner.
This is good news but we can only surmise ole George and his bunch are already making phone calls to not confirm him. We do have a very highly paid MCN lobbyist in Washington DC. Jonodev would not be one to look the other way with Georg’s tactics against the MCN Gaming.
