The Road to Self-Governance "One Step Closer"

Delegate Body Approval of New Stipulation and Order


On Thursday, May 22, 2014, a Special Meeting of the Delegate Body was called to consider and vote on a new Stipulation and Order in United States v. District Council, 90-cv-5722. It was approved unanimously by the Executive Committee and recommended to the Delegate Body. The new Independent Monitor, who will be appointed if and when the Stipulation is approved by the Court, Glen McGorty, attended the meeting and spoke to the Delegates. Then, Barbara Jones, the Council’s attorney, described the important provisions to the Delegate Body. After questions, the Delegate Body voted overwhelmingly, with only one no vote, to approve the Stipulation and Order, and to allow the current Stipulation if the Court is unable to approve the new Stipulation by the time the current Stipulation expires on June 4, 2014.
