Casino Update

The Shinnecock Indian Nation's plans to open a casino has hit another bump in the road: Gateway Casino Resorts, the Detroit-based development company that's helping to bankroll the project, was giving them $250,000 a month to cover tribe operating costs, but after an internal power struggle inside the Nation, those payments have been suspended. And it doesn't look like that cash is going to resume anytime soon: "Two divergent groups [claim] to be the legitimate leaders of the tribe and [are trading] conflicting declarations of authority." Gateway says they won't budge until the Shinnecocks can sort all this out. [Previously, 27 East]
