Stitt seeks another hearing in tribal gaming agreements case
August 13, 2020
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt is seeking another hearing before the state Supreme Court regarding its recent ruling on tribal gaming compacts that deemed the state's agreements with two Native American tribes invalid.
The state's high court determined last month that Stitt's compacts with the Comanche Nation and Otoe-Missouria Tribe were not valid because the Republican governor overstepped his authority by trying to greenlight sports betting and house-banked card and table games. The court's July 21 ruling concluded that state law prohibits those types of games.
