The Lytton Band of Pomo Indians isn't looking to open a casino in Napa County, California, an attorney said.

The tribe extended a $9 million loan to the company that owns the Jamieson Ranch Vineyards. Attorney Larry Stidham said the arrangement is merely a monetary one.

“We don’t have an interest in the business itself,” told The Napa Valley Register.

The tribe operates San Pablo Lytton Casino, a Class II facility in the Bay Area, and has been using gaming revenues to acquire land in its aboriginal territory. Stidham, however, pointed out that those purchases are in a different county.

“We’re trying to create a homeland in Sonoma County, not Napa.” Stidham told the paper.
