Federal judge says enough's enough; will decide bingo hall future


(Syracuse-AP) -- A federal judge says he's heard enough to decide the future of a high-stakes Bingo hall in the Finger Lakes in New York state.

US District Judge Neal McCurn said Monday that he'll forgo a trial and decide later this month whether to allow an Oklahoma tribe to build the $25-million gambling hall.

The ruling was a qualified victory for the Seneca-Cayuga Indian Tribe of Oklahoma.

Meanwhile, the judge left in place temporary restraining orders that bar both the tribe and town of Aurelius from taking additional steps.

The Seneca-Cayugas bought the Finger Lakes parcel last November and claim it's sovereign territory that's not subject to local or state laws.

Aurelius officials want the tribe to follow local zoning and building regulations and obtain the required permits and licenses.
