Florida Attorney General Wants Feds to Stop Some Seminole Gaming

Florida's Attorney General Bill McCollum wants a federal agency to step in and halt Las Vegas-style gambling at Seminole Indian casinos in Florida.

McCollum appealed to the National Indian Gaming Commission in a
letter Friday.

Florida doesn't have jurisdiction to stop what McCollum called
"illegal activities" on tribal property.

The tribe has continued offering banked card games and class III
slot machines even though the Florida Supreme Court has thrown out
a compact permitting them.

The justices ruled Gov. Charlie Crist lacked authority to enter that agreement without legislative approval.

Commission spokesman Shawn Pensoneau says McCollum's letter is
under review.
