BUFFALO, NY - A federal judge ruled this week that the Buffalo Creek Casino was illegal and must stop its gambling operation. U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny said the National Indian Gaming Comissions should not have approved the casino. The NIGC's decision was "arbitrary, capricious and not in accordance with the law".

The Seneca Nation has operated the casino in downtown Buffalo for the past year. It is a temporary structure on a nine-acre site on Michigan Avenue where the tribe is building an $300 million permanent casino adjacent to it.

Although the temporary casino must shut down immediately, it is unclear it the court ruling will stop construction of the permanent casino.

Seneca's president, Maurice John, said "The court's decision is lengthy and requires much closer analysis. We want to be sure that the court was aware of and considered all of the applicable federal law."
