Judge needs more time to rule in Catawba Nation casino suit

A judge in South Carolina said he needed time to rule in the Catawba Nation gaming lawsuit.

The state's Gambling Cruise Act of 2005 authorized off-shore casino boats. The tribe believes it's entitled to the same type of gaming on the reservation.

Circuit Judge Ernest Kinard asked both sides for more information. The tribe previously wanted to start construction on a gaming facility but agreed to hold off until the litigation is resolved.
