Seminoles ask court to reconsider gambling ruling

July 18, 2008

TALLAHASSEE – The Seminole Tribe filed a motion Thursday with the Florida Supreme Court requesting a rehearing of the court's decision July 3rd that invalidated an agreement with Gov. Crist for Las Vegas-style slot machines plus blackjack and baccarat table games in tribal casinos.

"The court made the statement that what is illegal in Florida is illegal on the Indian reservation. That's not true, it's more complex than that," Seminole lawyer Barry Richard said. Richard added that Gov. Crist's office has filed a separate request with the court.

The governor submitted to the courts: "The Court has misapprehended longstanding jurisdictional principles and dramatically expanded its own jurisdiction… The Court's decision constitutes a sea change."

Both had 15 days to request a rehearing following the 7-0 decision by the court. The unanimous ruling makes it highly unlikely a rehearing will be granted.
