SW Michigan casino foe wins appeal in lawsuit

Wayland Township, Michigan (AP) January 2011

A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit challenging a new casino in southwestern Michigan’s Allegan County.

The court said last week that David Patchak of Wayland Township can challenge how the federal government placed the land in trust for the Gun Lake Tribe of Pottawatomi Indians.

The ruling came on the same day that the tribe plans to announce when it will open the casino in Wayland Township, about 20 miles south of Grand Rapids. Tribe spokesman James Nye says there will be no delay.

Patchak’s lawyer, John Bursch, says the court order means the lawsuit will get a new start in federal court in Washington, D.C. He says the casino will “destroy the rural lifestyle.”
