Federal Recognition
Trump presses lawsuit against Eastern Pequots

Casino mogul Donald Trump said he won't give up his lawsuit against the Eastern Pequot Tribal Nation of Connecticut.

Trump sued the tribe after he was dumped as a casino investor. He says he is owed at least $500 million for financing a faction of the tribe.

The two factions have since reunited but their federal recognition is being reconsidered by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
