Ho-Chunk Nation ordered to arbitrate over compact

A federal judge has ordered the Ho-Chunk Nation and the state of Wisconsin into arbitration over a Class III gaming compact.

The tribe and the state signed the compact in 2003. It allowed the tribe to operate more Class III games and for the state to get a share of the revenues.

The tribe stopped operating the games after the state Supreme Court invalidated the compact in a case involving another tribe. The state, however, claims the tribe owes about $100 million.
