Judge offers mixed ruling on Buffalo Casino

A Federal Court judge has ruled that the Seneca Nationproperty in Buffalo is sovereign territory. Which looks like a win for the casino. But to make it confusing, Judge William Skretny also ruled that the Seneca Nation does not have the legal right to operate a casino on that nine acre site in Buffalo's Cobblestone District.

Huh?

Apparently, the Seneca Nation and the anti-progress ... er, I mean anti-casino folks will both hold press conferences later today.
