OKLAHOMA CITY AP — A Las Vegas gaming management company sued the Tonkawa Tribe of Oklahoma on Tuesday, alleging tribal officials violated management agreements with the company when they took over control of two tribal casinos in north-central Oklahoma and barred the firm's employees from them.
Gaughan Gaming, which has managed the Tonkawa Indian Casino in Tonkawa and the tribe's City Lights Casino in Newkirk near the Kansas border since 2007, filed the lawsuit in Kay County District Court claiming the tribe broke the management contracts when it forcibly evicted Gaughan and its employees from the casinos and took over their control.
The lawsuit requests an injunction to stop the tribe's native lights casino tonkawa ok commission from summarily suspending Gaughan's gaming license and source return control of the tribe's casinos to Gaughan.
A hearing on a request for a temporary restraining order is set for Friday before Kay County Associate District Judge Philip Ross.
An attorney for the tribe, Gary Pitchlynn of Norman, said a dispute involving alleged breach of contract by Gaughan resulted in suspension of its tribe-issued gaming license for the Tonkawa casinos.
The license was suspended on Sept.
The company's attorney, Jimmy Goodman of Oklahoma City, said its gaming license with the tribe was suspended without the legally required hearing.
Goodman declined to comment on whether tribal politics played a role in suspension of the license and removal of Gaughan's employees from the casinos.
Gaughan's contracts with the tribe expire in July at the Tonkawa Indian Casino and in Native lights casino tonkawa ok 2012 at Native Lights.

The lawsuit says the tribe was also placed on probation.
