A government agency is being sued by Oklahoma's Fort Sill Apache tribe over the forced closure of their New Mexico casino. The tribe was recently given recognition by the state of New Mexico.

The law suit was submitted on Friday against the National Indian Gaming Commission. The suit was filed at Washington's U.S. District Court.

The Apache Homelands Casino was forced to close in 2009. The chairman of the gaming commission ordered the closure due to operating bingo games illegally.

On April 14, the Fort Sill Apache were ruled in favor of by the New Mexico Supreme Court. The court ruled that the New Mexico governor will give state recognition to the tribe.
