Mohicans sue Feds for blocking Catskills casino

November 6, 2008

The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans has sued the U.S. Department of Interior for denying their application in pursuit of a Catskills casino earlier this. The tribe alleges the department's action was arbitrarily and capricious when it introduced new policy for off-reservation casinos.

The Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans reside in Wisconsin but have ancestral ties to New York. They have land claims in Madison and Oneida counties, which they had offered to settle for rights to build an Indian casino in Sullivan County. Their application with the Interior Department was filed seven years ago and six years before the policy change.

"With the largest projected state deficit in recent memory and an economic collapse not seen since the Depression, our proposal for economic stimulation in the Catskills must be given a fair review, as we are entitled by law," said Robert Chicks, President of the Stockbridge-Munsee Community, Band of Mohican Indians.
