Kansas Casino Closing Rejected - Saturday 15th of April 2006

KANSAS – As reported by the Kansas City Star: "Federal appellate court judges ruled Friday that Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline had no authority to raid and close a tribal casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan., two years ago.

"'There was no legal basis for the state's action and very little likelihood that the state will ever have a legal justification for enforcing its gaming laws' on the small tract of land across the street from City Hall, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said.

"The immediate effect of the ruling was unclear. Conly J. Schulte, the Omaha, Neb., attorney who argued the case for the Oklahoma-based Wyandotte Nation, could not be reached for comment.

"…The ruling would appear to allow the tribe to resume that work and even conduct gambling there — at least temporarily.

"…The ruling Friday dissolved an injunction the court said was improperly issued by federal District Judge Julie Robinson that temporarily barred the tribe from conducting gambling activities on the site…"
