TUESDAY, MAY 6, 2003

Connecticut attorney general Richard Blumenthal says his challenge to the federal recognition of the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation could end up in the courts, The Norwich Bulletin reports.

Blumenthal and three towns have filed an appeal with the Department of Interior's Board of Indian Appeals. He says the tribes don't meet federal recognition criteria.

Former assistant secretary Neal McCaleb extended final recognition to the tribe last summer.
