Pojoaque Pueblo files lawsuit regarding gaming on tribal lands

SANTA FE (KRQE) – A New Mexico tribe is accusing the state of secretly trying to shut down its casinos.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the Pojoaque Pueblo filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s office late last week.

The tribe claims the New Mexico Gaming Control Board illegally met behind closed doors to plot a way to close its casinos. The board’s director denies the allegations.

The state and Pojoaque Pueblo have been locked in a federal lawsuit over its gaming compact.
