Bookmark and Share

Lane Powell Shareholder John Devlin was quoted in the March 6, 2008, issue of the Everett Herald Net in an article titled, “Snohomish Tribe sues to overturn denial of U.S. recognition.” The article discussed a lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court by the Snohomish Tribe of Indians, regarding their federal recognition status. Devlin is the tribe’s attorney. “There are certain standards you have to meet to get recognition, and our point is that we met that standard but the government didn’t apply the facts,” Devlin said.
