Judge Rules in Favor of Poarch Band of Creek Indians Gaming
April 16, 2014
A judgment was made in favor of the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. The tribe had
been sued by the State of Alabama in regards to the tribes operation of their
casino. A U.S. District Court judge dismissed the case.
The judge ruled that gaming that happens on tribal land cannot be regulated by
the state. There is no state law that can prevent them from doing so.
The tribe owns land in Montgomery, Wetumpka, and Atmore. Based on the ruling,
the tribe may be able to develop casinos in those areas.
The Indian Gaming Regulatory Act allows for the Poarch Creeks to operate casinos
on their land. The National Indian Gaming Commission enforced the act.
A request for an appeal is expected to be submitted by Luther Strange, Alabama
