Michigan's Attorney General is no longer asking the US Supreme Court to hear his appeal over a proposed casino in Lansing.
But that doesn't mean Bill Schuette is dropping his fight to block the casino. Without getting too much into the legal nitty-gritty, it's because of a Supreme Court ruling in a similar case. The court said the state cannot sue the Bay Mills Indian Community for opening an off-reservation casino because it has tribal immunity.
The same ruling applies to the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians, which is trying to open the Kewadin Casino in downtown Lansing. Instead of suing the tribe, Schuette is taking the case back to the district court, where he could sue tribal "leaders" for violating their agreement with the state.
