Even though legal action is pending, tribal owners said Thursday that the 7th Street Casino in downtown Kansas City, Kan., will open Jan. 10.
The Oklahoma-based Wyandotte Nation bought the former Scottish Rite structure at Seventh Street and Ann Avenue in 1996 and has been in court ever since fighting the state, the city and several Kansas-based tribes for rights to operate a casino on the grounds.
The Kansas attorney generalís office has filed a motion with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver seeking to reverse an October decision in favor of the tribe. The state almost 12 years ago challenged the landís status as de facto reservation land qualified for tribal gaming, but has never had an appellate court rule on the merits of its argument.
