Appeal Due In Indian Gambling Ruling

Sponsored by:

Four San Francisco Bay area card rooms filed notice today that they will appeal a judge´s ruling this week that California’s Indian gambling law does not violate federal law.

The judge says state law gives tribes a monopoly to operate casinos – but says that violates neither federal law nor the U.S. constitutional guarantee of equal protection.

A card room attorney predicts the issue will ultimately reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

A representative from the Black Oak Casino in Tuolumne City declined to comment this afternoon on the issue.

The card rooms are challenging Proposition 1-A that in March 2000 amended the state’s Constitution to permit tribes to operate casinos on their reservations.
