Governor’s federal appeal of gaming ruling rejected

Author:

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s request that it reconsider a decision that changes the balance of power between the state and Indian tribes seeking to expand their casinos. At issue is a decision by a San Diego judge that Schwarzenegger negotiated in bad faith with the Rincon Indian band, which owns the Harrah’s casino north of Valley Center.
