Tribes Sue US Interior Department Over Expansion

posted by John Baibak - 

Two casino operators are suing the  U.S. Department of the Interior for refusing to approve a casino aimed  at competing with the new MGM resort in Springfield. 

Mohegan and  Mashantucket Pequot tribes, which operate Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods  Resort Casino, say the department is illegally trying to delay plans for  the new casino in East Windsor. 

Politico reports Interior Secretary  Ryan Zinke has met with MGM lobbyists and legislators who support the  company, but it's not clear if the tribes' casino project was  discussed.
