Tribal Gaming - South Dakota tribe says ex-governor has important info

Sioux Falls, South Dakota (AP) January 2011

Lawyers for an Indian tribe that is suing South Dakota over gambling say they should be allowed to question former Gov. Mike Rounds before trial because he has information that can’t be obtained from others.

The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe’s lawsuit says the state has unfairly prevented it from adding slot machines at its casino in Flandreau.

Lawyers for the state filed a motion to block a subpoena from the tribe requiring Rounds to answer questions under oath as part of the evidence gathering process.

In response, the tribe’s lawyers say information from Rounds is important to their case because the governor has the final say on all gambling compacts between the state and tribes.
