Mohawks sue to compel Interior ruling on land trust application

St. Regis Mohawk Reservation, New York (AP) 11-07

The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe is filing a lawsuit in federal court against Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne, accusing his agency of undue delay and acting in bad faith on the tribe’s application to put into federal trust nearly 30 acres for its proposed casino in the Catskills.

The tribe’s lawsuit asks the court to compel Kempthorne to make a decision on the application within 30 days. The tribe says the application is complete, but inexplicably languishing before federal authorities.

The tribe needs the approval to move ahead with plans to build a $600 million casino in Monticello, 90 miles northwest of New York City.
