The North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians of California filed suit to block a referendum on its Class III gaming compact.

The compact authorizes an off-reservation casino. It was approved by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and a notice was published in the Federal Register on October 22, 2013.

A group called Stand Up for California, however, collected enough signatures to put the compact to a statewide vote. The effort was funded, in part, by rival tribes with existing casinos.

The lawsuit was filed in Madera County Superior Court.
