Kansas sues to block Wyandotte Nation's plans for casino

August 10, 2020 - 5:44 pm

Kansas has filed a lawsuit against top officials at the U.S. Department of Interior seeking to block the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma from building a casino on land it owns in Park City. It is the latest legal twist in a decades-long dispute over the tribe’s legal authority on the 10-acre parcel. The federal lawsuit filed Monday is an effort to set aside a decision issued in May by the Interior Department that cleared the way for the project. That reversed an earlier decision from 2014 that had the tribe’s request to build the casino on the parcel it purchased on 1992.
