From the Tribe:
The Stockbridge-Munsee Tribe announced today that it has notified the State of Wisconsin of its intent to withhold its revenue sharing payment of $923,000 due to the State’s violation of its gaming compact with the tribe.
The State is in violation of two sections of its compact with the Stockbridge-Munsee by:
- Allowing the Ho-Chunk Nation to unlawfully operate its Wittenberg Casino on lands not eligible for Indian gaming under IGRA since 2008.
- Allowing the Ho-Chunk Nation to operate the Wittenberg Casino beyond the scope permitted in Ho-Chunk Nation’s gaming compact with the State since 2008.
More information and supporting documents can be found on the tribal website.

- Recent California trends related to ancillary facilities and how practitioners can use these new trends to their advantage when negotiating or renegotiating intergovernmental agreements; and
- The unique ethical issues faced by attorneys when negotiating the best deal for the tribal client may set negative precedent for Indian Country.
