Soboba Casino warned about violence
June 13, 2008
SAN JACINTO, CA - The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC)
has warned the Soboba tribe that further violence on their reservation could
force the closure of their casino. This follows two law enforcement shootouts on
the reservation that that killed three tribal members.
NIGC Chairman, Phil Hogen, confirmed today that he and his staff have talked
with the Soboba Band of Luiseņo Indians about the shootouts. "If it looks like
it's going to put life and limb at risk ... closure of the facility might be
necessary." However, he added that closure would be the "worst-case scenario."
Soboba Chairman Robert Salgado said Friday he has asked Hogen to send an NIGC
inspector from Washington DC to review and settle any concerns held by the
Return to California Casinos.
