Magistrate rejects plea to reinstate mayor

Posted: Wednesday, February 27, 2008

KETCHIKAN - A Metlakatla Tribal Court magistrate dismissed a request from the Indian community's ousted mayor asking the court to reinstate him.

John Scudero Jr. was elected Metlakatla's mayor in November and took office Jan. 7, but not quite a month later the 12-member Metlakatla Indian Community Council voted unanimously to remove him.

Scudero, who was out of the state on Monday, had said he fully expected the MIC-appointed magistrate to dismiss his case, but he wanted to follow proper procedures.
