Judge dismisses lawsuit brought by Oklahoma tribe over Kansas land slated for a casino

Share/Save/Bookmark

WICHITA, Kansas — A federal judge has dismissed the lawsuit brought by an Oklahoma tribe seeking to build a casino on suburban Wichita land.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson dismissed the lawsuit Monday after the Interior Department earlier had notified the court that it rejected the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma application to take the Park City land into trust so the tribe can build a casino there.

Robinson ruled last year the decision was up to the Interior Department, but had retained jurisdiction to ensure the federal agency processed the application in a timely manner.

The tribe said Friday that the Interior Department decision gave the tribe the option to submit a new application addressing accounting issues that formed the basis for the denial.
