CARTER LAKE , IA - The federal government has asked the court to reconsider last month's ruling to block the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska from building a casino in Carter Lake. The federal government claims the ruling was based on factual and legal errors.

U.S. District Judge Charles Wolle had ruled that the Ponca Tribe was bound by a 2002 agreement not to use its five acres of land in Carter Lake for gambling. The tribe had told the state of Iowa that the land would be used for health services.

The judge also ruled that the NIGC (National Indian Gaming Commission) exceeded its authority in in approving the tribe's application to have gambling on the land.

Tribal Chairman Larry Wright said in a statement: "We are confident the law remains on the side of the tribe and continue to pursue our world-class casino resort in Carter Lake that will create great economic benefits for the community."
