Government officials in Iowa and Nebraska have attempted to prevent the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska from opening a casino in Carter Lake. Although Iowa permits casino gambling, Nebraska does not. After several hearings, the future of the proposed casino project remains uncertain.
Attorney James Meggesto who represented the tribe, said he "can't say for sure" whether an appeal is possible or likely. But he said the commission's order shows that it clearly considered arguments on both sides of the dispute. "It’s certainly gratifying to see that the government took a hard look at this and vindicated the tribe's rights," Mr. Meggesto said.
