While lawsuits are forming, the Bay Mills Indian Tribe are preparing to defend their new casino in federal court. The casino is facing possible closure after just opening in November of this year.
The tribe is confident in their legal position and opened the casino lawfully. The day the casino was opened, the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians filled a lawsuit to shut Bay Mills down. Stating that they are operating a casino that is not on Indian land.
Currently the Bay Mills Casino, located in Vanderbilt, is still open and will continue to operate pending litigation.
