The Keno Case

In State of Michigan v. Little River Band of Ottawa Indians et al., the State is suing LRB and LTBB for violation of the gaming compacts requirement that the tribes share revenue from their gaming operations — LTBB Compact & LRB Compact. The tribes stopped payment when Governor Granholm authorized the state to begin keno at bars and restaurants. Senior District Court Judge Miles granted the State’s motion for summary judgment last April. The appeal to the Sixth Circuit is forthcoming. As those briefs go online, we will upload them here.
