"The Seneca Nation's bid for a Buffalo casino moved forward on two fronts Wednesday, with the tribe announcing that it had finished land acquisition and the state's highest court ending Cheektowaga's attempt to remain in the running for the project.

"Seneca Nation President Barry E. Snyder Sr. clarified the tribe's plans for its Buffalo casino in a meeting with Rep. Brian M. Higgins, D-Buffalo, a day after the Court of Appeals issued its ruling.

"…Meanwhile, the Court of Appeals dismissed Cheektowaga's request to hear a case that would have given the town a chance at the casino if the tribe's Buffalo plans fell through…"
