Restraining Order Against Tonkawa Tribal Gaming Commission Denied
April 04, 2011
A restraining order request was denied by a federal judge. The order was against
the Tonkawa tribe that suspended Gaughan Gaming's operation license that managed
two of the tribe's casinos.
The ruling came on Wednesday by Joe Heaton, a U.S. District Judge. It was stated
that Gaughan Gaming lacked enough evidence that there was a risk of irreparable
harm if the tribe continued with their hearing. The hearing is to discuss
whether the tribe will remove Gaughan Gaming license permanently.
Gaughan Gaming filed the lawsuit last week. The company states that the tribe
violated agreements in management.
The ruling was in regards to the restraining order only. The judge would not
address the request regarding dismissing the lawsuit.
