Fed up tribes sue card rooms, seek to halt offering some games they contend are illegal

Greg Moran November 23, 2018

Two Native American tribes that operate reservation casinos are suing a dozen card rooms from Chula Vista to the Bay Area, contending they are breaking state gambling laws by offering prohibited games that cost the tribes millions in lost revenues.

The lawsuit was filed in San Diego Superior Court by the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians, who operate a North County casino, and the Santa Ynez of Chumash Mission Indians, who have a casino on tribal land in Santa Barbara County. Among the card rooms named are the Seven Mile Casino in Chula Vista and Oceans 11 in Oceanside, as well as card rooms in the Los Angeles suburbs of Commerce, Hawaiian Gardens and Bell Gardens.
