S.C. Supreme Court holds that Catawba Indians may not offer video poker on the reservation

In Catawba Indian Tribe v. State, the S.C. Supreme Court held that as part of a 1993 Settlement Agreement, the Tribe agreed to comply with state law and waived its right to be governed by the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. Hence, under the general law of South Carolina, video poker is a no-go on the reservation.
