Litigation will delay a casino for the Cowlitz Tribe of Washington by at least 18 months, the tribe's partner said.
Officials in Clark County are going to sue the Bureau of Indian Affairs for approving the tribe's land-into-trust application. The deadline to file is February 4.
The tribe's partner is the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut. The Mohegans have reportedly spent $40 million on the project so far.
