Facts

  • In March 2007, a U. S. District Judge rejected the State Court ruling, saying the tribe could proceed with so-called Class II gambling, which includes slot machines.
  • Downtown business interests and the Unified Government have fought the move because the landmark building is across the street from city hall and two blocks from a catholic church.
  • The Wyandotte Indians have controlled adjacent Huron Indian Cemetery since 1843 and purchased the former temple for the purpose of making it "Native American property" to operate a casino.
  • For about six months in 2004, the tribe operated its 7th Street Casino at the site until the KBI and the Kansas Attorney General raided the operation and shut it down.
  • In October 2006, a court refused to overturn the decision of a lower court that the Wyandotte Indians of Wyandotte, Oklahoma may operate a tribal casino in this historic building, apparently ending a decade-long court battle over use of the building for gambling.
