Judge opens hearing on Kialegee Tribal Town's casino project

A federal judge is opening a hearing today in a lawsuit aimed at stopping the Kialegee Tribal Town in Oklahoma from opening a casino.

But Tiger Hobia, the tribe's leader, won't be required to testify, according to news reports. He was disputing a subpoena to appear in court but both sides reached an agreement in which key documents will be supplied in his place.

The tribe is building the Red Clay Casino on an Indian allotment that's owned by two members of the Muscogee Nation. The state claims the site can't be used for gaming.
