McCollum rejected on Seminoles

The Orlando Sentinel reports here on the federal court's dismissal of Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum's lawsuit to keep the U.S. Department of the Interior from accepting a compact reached in November between the Seminole Indian tribe and Governor Crist. A separate case is still pending in the Florida Supreme Court, which will likely have the final say on Governor Crist's authority to negotiate the compact. Previous posts on the slots cases are available here.
