WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2003

The Seminole Tribe of Florida is asking a federal court to vacate an agreement made with a gaming company for a casino that is bringing in more money than anyone expected.

The tribe says the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the National Indian Gaming Commission never approved the agreement. Coconut Creek Gaming says federal approval wasn't required.

The agreement calls for the tribe pay as much as $250 million to Coconut Creek, which planned, financed and constructed the $20 million casino. The tribe already paid $58 million but halted payments last July.
