The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals won't rehear a gaming dispute involving the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians.

The city of Duluth, Minnesota, asked the full court to revisit the case after a three-judge panel ruled that the tribe is not required to share revenues from the Fond-du-Luth Casino. The city could now ask the U.S. Supreme Court to take up the dispute.

“We were covering our bases,” city attorney Gunnar Johnson told The Duluth News Tribune. “It’s not a surprise.”

Between 1994 and 2009, the tribe paid about $75 million to the city under an agreement that was later invalidated by the National Indian Gaming Commission.
