Kialegee Tribal Town wants 10th Circuit to rule in gaming case


The Kialegee Tribal Town of Oklahoma is asking the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to review a gaming case.

The tribe wants to open the Red Clay Casino on an Indian allotment. But Judge Gregory Frizzell blocked construction, ruling that the tribe lacked jurisdiction over the site, which is owned by two members of the Muscogee Nation.

Meanwhile, the developers behind the casino have approached the Muscogee Nation about getting involved. Tribal leaders, however, rejected the plan in a council committee.

"Why would we consider taking over that disaster?" National Council Speaker Sam Alexander told The Tulsa World. "They want to salvage a business disaster - a horrible business disaster."
