Casino Controversy Continues

Antigo, WI, United States /

The Ho-Chunk Nation is pushing back against a rival tribe’s lawsuit seeking to halt the Ho-Chunk’s plans to expand a northern Wisconsin casino, arguing in new filings that the lawsuit has little chance of success and a judge should reject it. The Ho-Chunk filed a brief Thursday contending that the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans’ preliminary injunction demand is an extraordinary remedy to the all-too ordinary business problem of competition. The dispute centers on the Ho-Chunk’s efforts to add hundreds of slot machines, table games, a restaurant and a hotel to its casino in Wittenberg, about 20 miles east of Wausau. Construction is already underway.
