Memory takes me back today to story-time with my two little princesses, so long ago. The book was R. J. Unstead’s “Princes and Rebels”; I would interpolate into Mr. Unstead’s prose certain remarks of mine own. The heroine of this story, Margaret Paston, 15th Century fighting woman and epistolarian, was again besieged, and desperate to find money to fund the family’s numerous lawsuits.

I interpolated “The lawyers would not be paid!” On cue, my babies responded “Wooo!” Young as they were, they well understood much depended upon a certain lawyer being paid.

Well, today Judge J. R. Goeke has the gladsome news for the lawyers for Blue Lake Rancheria Economic Development Corporation, Docket No. 16150-17L, filed 7/5/19.

“ORDERED and DECIDED that petitioner is entitled to reasonable litigation costs in the amount of $483,331.93.” Order, at p. 1.

For the whole story, see my blogpost “Indians Divided and Not Taxed,” 3/6/19.
