Judge blocks Kialegee Tribal Town from opening disputed casino

The Kialegee Tribal Town can't open a casino on an Indian allotment in Oklahoma, a federal judge ruled on Friday.

The tribe lacks jurisdiction over the allotment, Judge Gregory Frizzell ruled. The land is owned by members of a different tribe, the Muscogee Nation.

The tribe has been building the Red Clay Casino on the allotment. The decision will be appealed, attorneys indicated.
