Apache Tribe Tries to Keep New Mexico Casino Open

After National Indian Gaming Commission Chairman Philip Hogen issued a cease-and-desist letter to the Fort Sill Apache Tribe of Oklahoma regarding its casino operations in New Mexico, the tribe is filing a federal court motion to keep the casino open. The Apaches currently offer paper bingo at their Apache Homeland Casino, and claim that they are legally allowed to do so. In his letter, Hogen stated that the Apaches fulfill none of the requirements specified by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, and will be fined eachday bingo operations continue at their casino.
