One faction of a North State Indian tribe has filed a federal lawsuit accusing another of squandering millions of dollars in profits from their Corning casino to lead lavish lifestyles.
The Sacramento Bee reported Tuesday that a federal lawsuit has been filed in the ongoing fight for control of the Rolling Hills Casino in Corning about two hours north of Sacramento. The casino makes $100 million a year, providing $54,000 annually to each tribe member.
The lawsuit alleges that Paskenta Band of Nomlaki tribe members managing the casino until last year had spent $17 million on private jet travel and millions more on luxury homes, sports cars and vacations.
The lawsuit alleges that those members mounted an armed attack in an attempt to regain control of the casino after they had been ousted.
