Judge orders Tigua tribe's casino to close games

Dallas Morning News,  Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 4:07:49 PM

A federal judge says El Paso's Tigua tribe must shut down its gift-card awarding slot machines.

U.S. District Judge Harry Hudspeth ruled yesterday that the electronic and sweepstakes games at the tribe's Speaking Rock Casino in east El Paso violate a 2001 court order that closed the once-lucrative casino.

The Tiguas has been fighting the state since then-Attorney General John Cornyn won a bid to shut down the casino, contending that it was an illegal gaming operation. the source

Tribe's men-only rule could derail its casino bid

Associated Press,  Thursday, March 26, 2009 at 3:26:38 PM

A tribe trying to persuade the state Legislature to let it reopen its casino has run into a roadblock -- its rule barring women from voting in tribal council elections.

Tigua Indian leaders say women have never voted and any call to change that would insult the 1,500-member tribe.

But Rep. Valinda Bolton says voting is "a basic human right," though she also recognizes the tribe's interest in economic development. After Bolton raised the issue, a meeting was hastily arranged between Tigua women and female legislators to discuss it further. the source
