(PARK CITY, Kan.)—A decision on whether a tribal casino will be built in Park City will now be up to a Kansas judge. Judge Beryl Howell in the District of Columbia ruled Wednesday that the case filed by the Wyandotte Nation should be moved to Kansas.
Back in July, the Wyandotte Nation filed a lawsuit against the Department of Interior Director Ken Salazar. Chief Billy Friend says they filed the suit because it's taken Salazar too long to put their land into a trust. The Wyandotte Nation owns 10 acres in Park City and hopes to eventually open a casino on the land.
A timeline of what happens next is unclear at this time.
