Federal Judge Upholds Senecas Arbitration Ruling

A federal judge agrees with the arbitration award against the Seneca Nation of Indians.
They’ll have to pay New York State more than $225 million in casino revenue.
The Senecas said they thought the last payment in 2016 ended their agreement under the 2002 Seneca Gaming Compact. The case has been in arbitration since then. An arbitration panel said in January 2018 that the Senecas owed the state $225.8 million plus its 25 percent contribution back to early 2017.
U.S. District Judge William Skretny said there were no grounds to vacate the arbitration award.
