City ends deal to sell land for Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe casino

The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe of Massachusetts is back to square one on gaming.

Just a few months after winning federal recognition in 2007, the tribe struck an agreement to build a casino in Middleboro. But the deal fell through and the tribe found another site in Fall River.

Now the casino plans are dead again. Fall River leaders said they are no longer willing to sell a 300-acre site to the tribe for $21 million, citing litigation and other concerns.
