Menominee tribe sues Fed for denying Kenosha casino
May 18, 2009
The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit in U.S.
District Court seeking to overturn a decision by the U.S. Department of Interior
to reject the tribe’s plans for a casino at Kenosha's Dairyland Greyhound Park.
The tribe contends the Interior Department acted unlawfully in the final months
of the Bush administration when it denied their application to take the land
into federal trust.
The Menominee tribe has spent the past 6 years pushing its plans for a $1
billion casino at the financially weak dog track.
The tribe has financial backing from the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut and
support from the City of Kenosha and Kenosha County, but it has strong
opposition from the Forest County Potawatomi tribe that wants to protect the
profitability of its casino in Milwaukee.
