    State sues Aquinnah tribe over its island casino

    Gov. Deval Patrick’s administration has filed suit against the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) to block a Martha’s Vineyard casino.
    The suit filed Monday with the state’s Supreme Judicial Court alleges that the tribe breached its contract with the state — a 1983 land settlement that was approved by Congress in 1987 — by seeking federal permission to build a Class II casino on its reservation land on Martha’s Vineyard.
