The state of California has filed a preliminary injunction in the ongoing Rolling Hills tribal dispute that would essentially extend the temporary restraining filed June 17.
The restraining order is aimed at protecting the public health, safety and welfare, and the state believes an injunction is the least intrusive way to protect these things.
The restraining order bans both sides of the Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians from attempting an overthrow of the casino and also restricts anyone from having firearms within 100 yards of the casino and nearby properties.
In the filed request, the state argues that shutting down the casino is not a necessary step to protecting the public welfare.
The request will be heard in front of a federal judge next Monday at 2:00 p.m.
