Village of Union Springs has appeal denied in attempt to enforce laws regarding Cayuga Nation gaming facility

The village of Union Springs has tirelessly tried to enforce laws to shut down an electronic gaming facility in an old Napa Auto Parts Store located on Route 90, and has had their latest appeal denied.

Clint Halftown, the Nation’s federal representative, vowed commitment to protecting businesses that he says are vital to support the Nations citizens, and compared the village’s attempt at wasting time and money on legal strategy to Seneca County.

The village has tried taking Cayuga Nation to court over the gaming facility since its reopening in 2013, but was ruled against under the Federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act which exempts the village from enforcing its laws against the Nation.
