The US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled for a second time that casinos in Michigan operated by Indian tribes must obey orders from the National Labor Relations Board.


A federal appeals court says a northern Michigan Indian tribe does not get to set its own labor rules at the casino it operates near Manistee. 

FireKeepers Casino Hotel is investigating a possible data security incident involving the casino’s point of sale system, Vice President of Marketing Jim Wise said Wednesday. Wise said the investigation comes after the casino recently received “a couple of calls” from guests indicating concern about their bank or credit card statements. Wise was unable to confirm exactly when the calls started and the number of people affected. (Battle Creek)
