Quapaw Tribe Seeks Dismissal of Gaming Suit against Kansas

KSAL StaffMarch 2, 2016

An attorney for the Quapaw tribe has agreed in federal court documents that the tribe’s gambling lawsuit against Kansas should be dismissed.

The tribe, which operates Downstream Casino Resort in Oklahoma, sued Kansas in January, asking that a judge order the state to negotiate an agreement with the tribe within 60 days that would allow it to offer gaming in Kansas.

The lawsuit could still pave the way for the tribe to ask the secretary of the Department of the Interior to issue guidelines for casino gaming on the Kansas side of Downstream’s property. Currently, the Kansas side of the resort’s property is used for parking lots.

A spokesman for Kansas Attorney General’s office says it will continue to oppose gaming on the land.

A Downstream spokesman declined to comment to The Joplin Globe
