May 22, 2015: Stop the Casino v Gov. Brown

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday turned down a petition in Stop the Casino 101 v. Brown, an Indian gaming case. The Stop the Casino 101 Coalition sued Gov. Jerry Brown (D) for signing a Class III gaming compact with the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria. The lawsuit claims the tribe's trust land was not properly removed from state jurisdiction. The lawsuit was dismissed at the state level in California so the group asked the high court to hear the case. Brown declined to respond to the petition and the justices, without comment, declined the petition in an order yesterday. "This marks the end of our legal challenge to the Graton Casino," the group said on its website.
