A group called Michigan Gambling Opposition has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their case to stop construction of the casino. Earlier this year the appeals court agreed with the tribe and upheld a decision by the U.S. Interior Department to take 147 acres of land near Grand Rapids into federal trust where the tribe will build their casino.
The stay means the appeals court will not send its decision back to the district
court, thereby delaying the Interior Department from completing the land
transfer into federal trust.
