  • Gaming panel withdraws opinion on Fort Sill casino

    Deming, New Mexico (AP)

    The leader of the Oklahoma-based Fort Sill Apache Tribe says he’s pleased with a decision by the National Indian Gaming Commission to withdraw its legal opinion about the tribe’s plan for a casino in New Mexico.

    The commission’s general counsel during early October withdrew the opinion, which concluded that the tribe could not legally open a casino on trust land east of Deming.
