Doug Dumbrill

Doug Dumbrill addresses the crowd at Tuesday’s regular Gillette City Council meeting immediately after announcing his resignation as a municipal court judge.

For the first time in more than four decades, Doug Dumbrill isn’t part of the local legal or judicial system.

His surprise, on-the-spot resignation as a municipal judge during Tuesday’s Gillette City Council meeting began a 15-minute confrontation with the audience that escalated into a shouting match. The council chambers had to be cleared and the verbal scuffle cased a 45-minute recess of the meeting.
