BROKEN ARROW, OK. (AP) - The state is asking a federal judge to speed up the release of information in its lawsuit over a planned casino in Broken Arrow, saying it's been unable to serve summons against Kialegee tribal leaders because the state can't find them.
Attorney General spokeswoman Diane Clay tells the Tulsa World that the Kialegee Tribe hasn't cooperated with attorneys for the state. Each side normally has 30 days to exchange information in the discovery process, but state attorneys are asking a judge to shorten that to five days.
An attorney for the tribe, Dennis Whittlesey, said in a court filing that the tribe would not assist the state in "finalizing incomplete allegations and serving this litigation against our clients."
The state sued last month to stop construction of the casino.
