SAULT STE. MARIE — The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians received some good news this morning. United States Bankruptcy Judge Walter Shapero has, yet again, rejected the efforts of Diane Adams to disrupt the resolution of the Greektown Holdings litigation.
Adams filed a motion for reconsideration. The Court flatly rejected that motion, saying,
"(a) Movants lack standing, (b) the Motion is inexcusably untimely, and (c) the Motion requests relief beyond the jurisdiction of this Court; furthermore, even if the Court were to consider the substance of Movants’ allegations, as was further elaborated upon in various procedurally deficient filings (Dkt. 3837, 3838, 3904), such would not alter the result; the Court therefore finding that the Motion does not demonstrate a palpable defect by which the Court and the parties have been misled or that a different disposition of the matter must result from a correction thereof, as required by E.D. Mich. LBR 9024-1(a)(3); NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT the Motion is denied."
Sault Tribe General Counsel John Wernet said, “Many thanks to Sault Tribe Attorney Courtney Kachur and to the tribe’s outside legal team at Frost Brown and at Plunkett for their efforts in again defending this frustrating and utterly baffling challenge, which seems to be based upon a completely erroneous understanding of both the facts and of the law.”
Adams has until Aug. 5 to file a further appeal.
