Aquinnah tribe takes casino pursuit to federal court

The Wampanoag Tribe of Aquinnah is taking its pursuit of a casino license to federal court, filing a motion on Friday to intervene in an existing lawsuit that challenges the state’s 2011 casino law.

The Martha’s Vineyard-based tribe argues that the outcome of that lawsuit — filed last November by KG Urban, a company seeking to build a commercial casino in New Bedford — could deprive the Aquinnah of an opportunity to pursue a tribal casino.
