The $245 million Kewadin Lansing casino may not happen. Michigan attorney general, Bill Schuette, is planning to stop the project.
On Friday a lawsuit was filed against the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians in the federal court.
It was previously voted on by the tribe to open a casino with permission of the federal government. The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians knew that there was a possibility of a lawsuit. However they expect the court to rule in their favor.
In January, the tribe announced their plans for the casino. They were strongly supported by Mayor Virg Bernero. Supporters of the casino project state that it would bring more jobs to the area and revenue to the city.
Schuette is not the only person opposed to the casino. Joining him is Gov. Rick Snyder and other Native American tribes. Some of which are also operating casinos.
