LAS CRUCES, NM - Last month the National Indian Gaming Commission issued a notice of violation against the Apache Homeland Casino ordering it to "immediately cease all gaming operations." The notice also said the Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma could be fined up to $25,000 per day. If operations continued.

Last week the tribe filed a motion in the U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City asking for recognition of the terms of a 2007 settlement which the tribe believes are the legal basis for gaming at the Apache Homeland Casino.

Tribal Chairman Jeff Houser says he intends to appeal the NIGC decision, and in the meantime, the tribe will continue to offer bingo at the casino. They are also launching TV ads in Albuquerque and Washington, D.C., asking President Barack Obama to keep the casino open.
