Kansas has filed a lawsuit attempting to prevent the Wyandotte Nation of Oklahoma from building a casino in Park City.

US.- The state of Kansas has filed a lawsuit against top officials at the US Department of Interior who gave the green light to plans for a new casino at Park City in May.

The Wyandotte Nation has owned a 10-acre piece of land in Park City since 1992. The Department of the Interior originally denied it the right to build a casino there back in 2014.

If built, the casino would be situated about 30 miles from the Kansas Star Casino in Mulvane.

Other parties advocating for blocking the casino’s construction include Sumner County, the city of Mulvane, the lowa Tribe of Kansas and the Sac and Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska.

Four tribes in Oklahoma also filed a lawsuit against the Department of the Interior earlier this week.
