County wins split decision in ruling over Mechoopda casino

Author:

Butte County's effort to prevent the proposed Mechoopda Indian casino from being built was successful in an appellate court decision Tuesday. In a 2-1 decision, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals concluded the Bush Administration Department of the Interior and National Indian Gaming Commission officials failed to adequately justify their decision not to revisit the Mechoopda casino's approval.
