State seeks names of Kialegee officials as part of gaming case

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is trying to find the officials of the Kialegee Tribal Town in order to serve them with a gaming lawsuit.

Pruitt is trying to stop the tribe from building the Red Clay Casino on a restricted Indian allotment. But he says he hasn't been able to identify all of the tribe's official leaders.

"We neither will — nor should be expected to — assist you in finalizing incomplete allegations and serving this litigation against our clients," Dennis Whittlesey, an attorney for the tribe, said in an e-mail that was submitted in court, The Tulsa World reported.

The state wants a federal judge to speed up the discovery process in the lawsuit, the paper said.
