Casino files suit to stop Seminole Tribe games

Miami Herald,  Wednesday, June 4, 2008 at 2:29:35 PM

Tallahassee--Three weeks before the Seminole Tribe is set to start operating blackjack and other card games at its Hard Rock Casino near Hollywood, Pompano Park's Isle Casino wants a federal judge to stop it, alleging the games are illegal.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Northern District of Florida against Gov. Charlie Crist and U.S. Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne, the Pompano Beach casino claims the gambling compact signed by the governor and the tribe in November is invalid because it violates the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act, which allows tribes to play only games already authorized in Florida.

The Isle Casino argues that blackjack and other so-called "banked card games" are not allowed in Florida, and the governor exceeded his authority by giving the tribe both Las Vegas-style slot machines and card games. Banked card games, such as blackjack and baccarat, allow players to play against the casino, rather than against other players.

If the tribe is allowed to open the blackjack games as planned later this month, the racetrack and casino "will suffer irreparable injury to its business, competitive standing and consumer base," the lawsuit alleges. the source
