WASHINGTON D.C.(WKZO) -- The U.S. Supreme Court has heard argument on a legal challenge to the Gun Lake Casino. Justices expressed concerns about closing a casino that is already open and supplying jobs. They questioned whether Plaintiff David Patchak lost his standing to sue the government to put the Land into trust once the deed was done.
The Supreme Court reverses about 3 out of the 4 lower court rulings they review so as it stands, the odds favor the Casino. They almost always do. A decision will come this summer.
Friday, recordings of the oral arguments should be available online.
