North Central Michigan College’s Luncheon Lecture will feature the Hon. Allie Greenleaf Maldonado, chief judge for the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians, on Friday, October 11.  The program will be held in the Library Conference Center on the Petoskey campus. Lunch begins at 11:30 a.m. and the program begins at noon.

What should a tribal court do with addicts who commit crimes?  Should a drug dealer be sent to jail or diverted to a healing-to-wellness program?  Judge Maldonado has faced those difficult questions and will explain how she answers them.  Her essay on the topic is contained in a new audio textbook, “Tough Cases,” which looks at the decision-making processes used by judges who have dealt with a variety of thorny cases, including Elián González, Scooter Libby, and Terri Schiavo.

Reservations are required.  Call 231-348-6600 or email to reserve your place at the table.  Cost is $12 (cash or check only – at door) and includes lunch.
