More Details on Casino in Lansing
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – More details about a casino proposed in Lansing by the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians could be known within a month, according to reports.
A federal judge in Grand Rapids says a ruling could be issued within thirty days. The court action is a result of Michigan attorney general Bill Schuette’s legal attempt to stop the casino project.
Lawyers for both the State of Michigan and the Sault Tribe were in federal court in Grand Rapids on Wednesday. The lawyers for the tribe argued that the Attorney General’s suit should be dismissed. Schuette says the casino, to be located five blocks east of the Capitol Building, violates both federal law as well as a tribal compact signed with the state.
