NEBRASKA AND IOWA -- As reported by The World Herald: "Nebraska and Iowa can
team up and legally attempt to block the Ponca Indian Tribe from building a
casino in Carter Lake, a federal judge ruled Monday.
"Judge Charles Wolle ruled that the State of Nebraska does have legal standing

trial is now set for Oct. 29 in Des Moines.

build a casino exempt from state taxes..."
