SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego County Indian tribe has won a lawsuit challenging a state cap on slot machines.
A federal judge ruled this week there should have been 10,000 more slot machines allocated to various tribes under a 1999 gaming deal with the state. The lawsuit was filed by the San Pasqual Indian band, which owns a casino in Valley Center.
The Rincon Indian band won a similar lawsuit in San Diego last week.
An attorney for the San Pasqual tribe says the Valley Center casino already has installed more slot machines under a ruling made by a federal judge in Northern California last year.
However, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is challenging that decision.
