Today, Congressman John Sullivan offered the following statement after Federal Judge Gregory Frizzell issued an injunction, stopping construction of the Kialegee Tribal Town casino in Broken Arrow. The ruling specifically states that the Kialegee Tribal Town is in violation of Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and does not have any jurisdiction on the property.
"I applaud Judge Frizzell's strong ruling to stop this casino from moving forward -- this is a big win for the Broken Arrow community. This decision reaffirms what I have said all along -- operating a casino without approval is a violation of federal law. I want to thank state officials for bringing this case forward and making the same arguments in court that I have been hammering home to Obama Administration bureaucrats over the past six months."
