Problem is that it can't find the gal because of the quotes in the name.
can you try from the Exchange management Console and remove from there

How to Find the Exchange 2010 GAL
1.Launch the Exchange Management Console.
2.Expand the Organization Configuration (Key point).
3.Select the Mailbox node.
4.Click on the Address Lists tab.
5.Observe the Default Global Address List

Hi,

global address list can only be removed from shell. The gal I've created is not the default gal. I create now gal for all organisations on our exchange servers to use address book policies.
can you provide the response of below command and show how it shows your gal

Get-GlobalAddressList

But you can rename the GAL from the management Console. can you modify and rename it.

Unfortunally I can not rename it in console, the only thing I can choose when I right click it is "help".
and what if you remove by using GUID instead of name
Great to hear it.. but why do you want to delete this .. this can be helpful for other people also.
