    Alabama submits opening brief in Poarch Creek casino dispute


    The state of Alabama is trying to convince a federal appeals court that the Poarch Band of Creek Indians operates an illegal gaming enterprise.
    In an opening brief to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, attorney general Luther Strange claims the tribe’s gaming facilities are not located on “Indian lands.” He is citing the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Carcieri v. Salazar and the more recent 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Big Lagoon Rancheria v. California.
