MONTGOMERY, AL - State Attorney General Troy King filed a lawsuit in federal
court at Mobile Monday against the U.S Department of interior in an attempt to
block the expansion of gambling by the Poarch Creek Indians.
The tribe was not included in the lawsuit.
Last March 4th the Interior Department announced it will resume informal talks with the Poarch Creek Indians, who would like to add slot machines and table games in their casinos in Atmore, Wetumpka and Montgomery where they currently operate electronic bingo games.
King said "The Department of Interior's recent actions represent a complete disregard for fundamental principles of states rights and an arrogant lack of respect for the people of Alabama."
