It has been ordered for casino till money to be given to a sheriff as payment for a settlement. The amount that will be paid back from the till is $725,000.
The order is towards the Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. Located near Yosemite National Park. The casino is owned by The Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians.
The sheriff must carry out the order by November.
Bank accounts for the tribe have been frozen due to issues with fighting amongst tribal leaders. This is what made Judge Michael Jurkovich order the payment from the casino till.
The lawsuit against the tribe is based around the relationship with Matt Olin, the former casino hotel manager. Olin had a contract for five years. However he was let go after the first year. When the tribe hired Olin, they gave away their sovereign immunity. This allowed for them to be sued by Olin.
With the dispute in tribal leadership and the bank account not being accessible, the settlement payment will come from the casino directly.
It is expected that the tribe will appeal the ruling.
