South Carolina filed motion to reconsider in Catawba video poker case

Judge Joseph Strickland ruled on December 13 that the Catawba Indian Nation had the right to offer the gambling game on its reservation about 10 miles south of Charlotte despite a statewide ban since 2000. In a motion to reconsider, Attorney General Henry McMaster argued that the 1993 land claim settlement between the Catawbas and the state and federal governments was not meant to allow the tribe to offer video poker.

The Charlotte Observer has this story.
