The Tigua Tribe will be in federal court next week to face contempt charges in a gaming dispute with the state of Texas.

The tribe was forced to shut down its Class III facility when the state went to federal court. The tribe now offers "sweepstakes" machines at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center.

The state contends the devices are gaming devices that are illegal under state law. A motion asks Judge Kathleen Cardone to hold the tribe in contempt.

Cardone will hold a hearing on the motion at 10:30am on Monday, March 10, at the federal court house in El Paso. The case is State of Texas v. Ysleta Del Sur, No. 99-00320.
