Oklahoma judge allows casino dispute hearing to go on

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (AP) April 2011

A federal judge has denied a gaming company’s temporary restraining order request against a Native American tribe that suspended the company’s license to operate two casinos in north-central Oklahoma.

U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton ruled that Gaughan Gaming hadn’t shown of a significant risk of irreparable harm if the Tonkawa Tribal Gaming Commission conducts a hearing on whether to permanently revoke the company’s license. 

Gaughan sued the tribe last week for allegedly violating management agreements.

Tribal attorney Gary Pitchlynn said that while the judge ruled in favor of the tribe on the restraining order, he didn’t address its request to dismiss the lawsuit or other issues.

Gaughan’s attorney, D. Michael McBride III, said the company is pleased that Heaton ruled he had jurisdiction on the remaining issues.
