State tries to stop use of Kialegee casino site for fireworks stand

A federal judge has barred the Kialegee Tribal Town from engaging in gaming on an Indian allotment but the state of Oklahoma is now trying to prevent the land from being used for a fireworks stand.

Crazy Debbie's Fireworks has operated on the allotment on a seasonal basis for the last five years, an attorney for the tribe said. The business has nothing to do with the proposed casino, the attorney said.

But Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt is seeking a contempt order against the casino developers. He claims the operation of the fireworks stand violates the injunction that was issued by the judge.

The state otherwise lacks jurisdiction over the allotment, which is owned by two Muscogee (Creek) sisters.
