Prairie Band Potawatomi in court against Harrah's

The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation is in court today to prevent its former gaming partner from opening a casino in Kansas.

Harrah's Entertainment used to run the Prairie Band Casino & Resort under a federally-approved gaming management contract. The deal ended last year when the tribe took complete control of the facility.

Even though the relationship ended, the tribe says Harrah's promised to wait two years before getting into the gaming business in Kansas. The tribe says the pledge was broken when Harrah's won approval to manage a commercial casino in the state.
