There has been a ruling in the favor of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe. A federal
district court judge has ruled the tribe can continue its efforts to build a
casino on its land in Clark County.
In 2002, the tribe applied to establish a reservation on 152 acres it purchased near La Center. They also wanted to build a
$510 million casino resort on the land. In 2010, the
application was given approval by the Bureau of Indian Affairs of the US
The US Justice Department disagreed with the approval and filed an appeal in court
to stop it. Several other groups also disagreed with the approval including
property owners, La Center card room operators, the city of Vancouver, and Clark
However, this court ruling agrees with the Cowlitz Indian Tribe. Plans to put the
land into trust and the future casino can continue.
