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.
