McCracken v. Perdue, 201 N.C. App. 480 (Dec. 22, 2009)

Reversing the trial court’s ruling that federal Indian gaming law prohibits the State from granting the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians of North Carolina (“the Tribe”) exclusive rights to conduct certain gaming on tribal land while prohibiting such gaming, in G.S. 14-306.1A, throughout the rest of the State. The court held that state law providing the Tribe with exclusive gaming rights does not violate federal Indian gaming law.
