  • Chippewa tribe sues over federal casino application process

    By Dinesh Ramde
    Milwaukee, Wisconsin (AP)

    A Chippewa tribe hoping to build a casino in the Beloit, Wis., area has filed a lawsuit accusing federal officials of changing rules to make it easier to deny applications.

    The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia names as defendants U.S. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs Carl J. Artman.

    It accuses Kempthorne of letting his “negative personal views” toward off-reservation gambling influence the approval process and says the Bureau of Indian Affairs has rearranged the application process in a way that makes it easier to turn applications down.
