Future Unclear for Kansas City Casino Case - Wednesday 19th of April 2006

KANSAS – As reported the Kansas City Star: "Lawyers were mostly mum on Monday on what happens next in the decadelong case of the 7th Street Casino in Kansas City, Kan.

"A federal appeals court on Friday dissolved an injunction barring the Oklahoma-based Wyandotte Nation from conducting gambling activities on the downtown sliver of land next to the tribe's historic Huron Cemetery, across the street from City Hall.

"The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday that Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline had no legal basis to raid and close the tribal gambling parlor two years ago. The Denver-based court said Kline was 'determined to shut down the tribe's gaming facility' but overstepped his authority by raiding the building on what appears to be sovereign Indian land.

"…What happens next is unclear. The tribe also owns a long-closed Masonic temple on the site that it once had begun to remodel as a casino.

"The ruling appears to allow the tribe to resume that work and conduct gambling there — at least temporarily. The tribe in December dismantled and hauled away the vacant and vandalized mobile building units it had fashioned into the modest casino structure that operated for less than a year…"
