    US Supreme Court hears Bay Mills casino case with implications for tribal gaming, sovereign immunity

    LANSING — The U.S. Supreme Court this morning heard oral arguments in a case that could have broad implications for tribal sovereign immunity and Indian-run casinos in Michigan.
    The state of Michigan argues that Bay Mills Indian Community violated state law and its tribal-state compact in 2010 when it opened a small casino in Vanderbilt, about 10 miles north of Gaylord. The now-closed casino is about a 110 mile-drive south of the Bay Mills reservation in the Upper Peninsula.
