Oklahoma tribe appeals casino ruling to NY federal court

Oklahoma tribe appeals casino ruling to NY federal court: "SYRACUSE, N.Y. The Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma is asking a federal appeals court in New York for authority to go ahead with plans for a Class Two gambling facility in Cayuga County, New York.
The tribe wants the court to reverse a judge's decision throwing out their plan to build a 25 (m) million-dollar gambling hall on a 229-acre farm in Aurelius, 40 miles west of Syracuse.
Class Two gambling includes bingo, pull tabs, lotto, punchboards, tip jars and certain card games. The Seneca-Cayugas currently operate a high-stakes bingo hall in northeastern Oklahoma.
City, county and state officials have been fighting the tribe in the federal courts for three years."
