Catawbas Take Casino Bid To SC Supreme Court
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina’s only federally recognized tribe is taking its quest to build a casino to the state Supreme Court.
Attorneys for the Catawba Indian Nation are in court Wednesday appealing a lower court’s ruling nixing plans to build a casino on their York County reservation.
They have argued that a state law passed in 2005 allowed gambling cruises to leave from the state’s ports, so South Carolina should allow the Catawbas to offer the same games at a new gambling hall near Rock Hill.
Attorneys for the state say that same law notes that gambling can’t begin on the boats until they reach international waters and specifically prohibits any casino-like gambling in areas controlled by South Carolina.
