Friday, January 18, 2013
The Quapaw Tribe of
Oklahoma and Cherokee County, Kansas, are in a dispute over land that's owned by a non-Indian gaming company.
The tribe says it made a down payment to Penn National Gaming for the 200-acre site.
But the county claims it reached a settlement to acquire the land.
Penn National was going to use the land for a commercial casino in the county but withdrew its bid. The tribe's casino is located in the county.
