The Cachil Dehe Band of Wintun Indians, also known as the Colusa Indian Community, has reached a settlement for work performed on its casino in California.

The tribe will receive $20 million from Hunt Construction, The Sacramento Business Journal reported. The money settles a lawsuit that alleged shoddy work on an expansion project at the Colusa Casino Resort.

“The tribe wanted the right thing to happen. They wanted Hunt to step up and take responsibility, and Hunt finally did,” attorney Dan Steinberg told the Journal.

The tribe had claimed $38 million in damages in a lawsuit that was filed last fall. The lawsuit said the casino hotel and two restaurants suffered from leaks and safety and structural problems.
