This month's edition of Indian Gaming magazine leads with an article by Bend, Oregon tribal lawyer Anthony Broadman about the increasingly pervasive role of cities in budding Indian gaming developments.
Where do businesses target high density customer bases? Where can tribal governmental gaming expand in the post-exclusivity age? The answer to both questions is the same: Cities. As tribes seek new markets, and novel revenue sources, we are seeing an uptick in conﬂicts in connection with attempts to capture urban gaming markets. These are both the Hail-Mary lawsuits of anti-gambling community organizations and high-level intergovernmental disputes among cities, states, the BIA, and competing tribal governments.
