Update Re: CyberSmokeSignals Lawsuit

Two members of the Board of Directors of the Manitoba Metis Federation have petitioned the Court to be removed as plaintiffs in the lawsuit against CyberSmokeSignals. Jeff Niederhoffer reprints an article from The Winnipeg Free Press which begins:
MANITOBA'S top Metis leader is being accused of using Manitoba Metis Federation funds to stifle criticism of his leadership.

MMF president David Chartrand is pursuing a lengthy and expensive lawsuit against a small band of dissidents who criticized him on an Internet site devoted to Metis issues.
(In the interest of full disclosure, it should be noted that Jeff Niederhoffer is the legal representation for the defendants in this lawsuit.)

Who are the Metis People?
