WASHINGTON, DC - In what is expected to be the last legal challenge to building the Gun Lake casino, the anti-casino group MichGO has again petitioned the U.S. District Court of Appeals in Washington to determine the constitutionality of the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934.

This time MichGO is asking the full nine-judge court to determine whether the Interior Department is violating the non-delegation doctrine by taking 147 acres of land into federal trust for the Gun Lake Tribe's proposed casino. This should be the last legal challenge for Gun Lake since the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request to review the same issue last February.

The Gun Lake Tribe, whose formal name is the Match-E-Be-Nash-She-Wish Band of Pottawatomi Indians, has battled 10 years of lawsuits to stop their plans to build a casino in Wayland County. The $200 million casino will feature 2,500 slots and 80 gaming tables.

Return to Michigan Casinos.
