Kialegee Feud Moves to Federal Court (May 16, 2012)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A hearing is under way in federal court over whether a small American Indian tribe can legally build a casino in a Tulsa suburb.

Oklahoma's attorney general sued the Kialegee Tribal Town, and District Judge Gregory Frizzell is considering the state's request for an injunction to halt building at the site in Broken Arrow.

The state says the tribe lacks authority under federal law to operate a gaming facility.

A Kialegee attorney says the Red Clay Casino is currently being considered by the National Indian Gaming Commission. The tribe says that agency has never questioned the project's legality.

An attorney representing the state says the Kialegee are trying to inject a casino into a residential area even though they have no legal claim to build on that land.
