Rhode Island Supreme Court Holds Indian Tribe Has Standing To Challenge Constitutionality of State Casino Acts

The Rhode Island Supreme Court has held that the Narragansett Indian Tribe ("the Tribe") has standing under a state statute to challenge the constitutionality of state legislation allowing the state's two casinos to add table games. The Tribe alleges it will lose revenue because one casino will be reducing the number of its slot machines to add table games. The statute provides that the Tribe is entitled to a certain percentage of the revenue from the slot machines at the casino.
