The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case that could decide the fate of a planned Indian Casino in downtown Lansing.
Attorney General Bill Schuette sued to shut down the "Bay Mills Casino" in the Upper Peninsula, which is on land the Bay Mills Indian community bought in 2010.
If at least five justices agree with him, the ruling could block plans for the "Kewadin" casino the Sault tribe of Chippewa Indians wants to build next to the Lansing Center.
A separate lawsuit about that project is working its way through the federal court system.
