The following comment was posted in the thread “Gary Fincher sends letter to Judicial Committee re Sean Haugh”:
LPHQ staff answers to the executive director. The executive director answers to the chair. The chair answers to the LNC. The LNC answers to itself except for every two years (elections) or when it does something that is appealed by x% of the membership.
If in Mr. Fincher’s opinion the political director, executive director and chair have all failed to respond appropriately to his concerns, then the next avenue would be to lobby the LNC for satisfactory action. The only way it gets to the Judicial Committee is if the LNC actually does something, and if Mr. Fincher can enroll x% of the membership to appeal whatever the LNC did (if it’s something he wants to appeal).
For example, Mr. Fincher could lobby the LNC to direct the chair to dismiss Mr. Haugh for some stated cause. I suspect he might be able to find a sponsor for such a motion, but it might be difficult for that LNC member to even get the motion to the floor (does it have to be on the agenda? What if the chair rules it out of order? etc.), and it’s unlikely to pass (the LNC traditionally gives the chair a great deal of latitude as CEO, and the chair traditionally gives the executive director similar latitude as COO).
