The casinos owned by the Poarch Band of Creek Indians are facing a possible shut
down by a lawsuit brought by the Attorney General. The tribe owns three casinos.
The case is headed to federal court.
The lawsuit was first filed in Elmore County. This is where one of the casino
locations is. The Attorney General is suing the tribe stating that the casinos
are a public nuisance. Also that the operation of the gaming machines is
illegal. The tribe defended themselves stating that the lawsuit was based on
federal law. Soon after the case was moved the Montgomery federal courthouse.
The tribe defends their casinos by stating that the casinos are on tribal land.
The state can not control the casinos on their land. That the issue needs to go
to the US District Judge instead.
The tribe owns casinos in Montgomery, Wetumpka, and Atmore.
