Supreme Court Boosts Tribal Sovereignty in Texas Gaming Dispute

Texas can’t prohibit a federally recognized Indian tribe from engaging in certain gaming activities, the US Supreme Court said.

Ruling in a decades long dispute on Wednesday , the justices 5-4 backed the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo tribe’s argument that allowing it to run electronic machines and live-called bingo at its Speaking Rock Entertainment Center was a matter of sovereign immunity and economic necessity.

The dispute affects the Ysleta del Sur Pueblo and another Texas tribe, but implicates other sovereignty issues as well.

The case is Ysleta del Sure Pueblo v. Texas, U.S., No. 20-493.
