Arizona tribe sues Mashantuckets for millions over medical claims


An Arizona Indian tribe is suing the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation in tribal court, alleging the Mashantuckets' Pequot Plus Health Benefit Services mishandled the White Mountain Apache Tribe's medical claims in 2007 and 2008. Although a complaint filed in August establishes no figure for the damages sought, the amount at stake is estimated to be more than $6 million, according to the New London attorney representing the White Mountain Apache.
