Mimosine,

You are sadly mistaken.

There have been several TRIBAL CASINOS in California that have been caught cheating, and there have never been any repercussions.

In one well-known, case an attorney had wanted his losses reimbursed after the casino was caught using marked cards. The tribe admitted it, but there was no recourse for the public.

And as far as being back-roomed, last year I was detained for several hours by a tribal casino after I had been found on the grounds following a prior trespassing.

Being back-roomed after being read your trespass act is completely different than being back-roomed in your first interaction with management though, no?

I thought appearing on the grounds after a trespass has been read gives them the right to hold you until the police come, as they now have legal reasons to do such.

Tribal casinos have whatever rights they decide that they have.

They are sovereign.

Currently, the Supreme Court of Florida, having decided quite a while ago, that the Governor did NOT have the right to permit casinos to operate in Florida. He had granted an actual MONOPOLY to the Seminole Tribe.

It is laughable, of course, because the state cannot do a thing about it.

In the mid 1980's The Mohawk Indians had been (for years) operating casinos on their reservation land on the Canadian border, at the Saint Regis Reservation.
Then Governor Nelson Roosevelt had a brain fart and decided that he was not going to permit same. He sent in the State Troopers. They were met with roadblocks and gunfire. There were some troopers wounded but nobody was killed. The State Troopers, apparently under advise of the Attorney General, retreated - never to return.

Tribes are sovereign from STATE action, but not federal.

It's like CA going to Nevada and saying they can't permit gambling.

I have been having this debate for years mostly with lawyers, but frequently with those who harbor naive notions re: this issue.

The "facts on the ground" decide the reality of this issue.

The "Feds" ("Bureau of Indian Affairs) has NEVER taken any action against the tribes.
