Pojoaque Pueblo has filed a lawsuit against the state, claiming Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration has failed to negotiate on a new gambling compact in good faith.

In the lawsuit filed in federal court on Friday, the pueblo, which operates two large gambling operations north of Santa Fe — the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino and the Cities of Gold Casino — claims the Martinez administration wants an agreement that would further restrict tribal gambling operations and increase taxes and other fees.

    I guess my original comment annoyed either the Lujan's or the Pueblo of Pojoaque, because it got removed. The truth is the truth, Ben Lujan and Bill Richardson pulled some strings for the Pueblo of Pojoaque. They got a better deal than the other tribes. Like I originally stated, "what goes for the other tribes should go for ALL of the tribes.". Pay equally Pojoaque, and stop playing the victim here. The victims are all the locals with pick up trucks with in-state liscense plates on them that are supporting those trying to screw them for their water, yet supporting their gaming facilities. That is what is wrong with legal gambling in New Mexico. Where are the tourists?

    Are the Pojoaques going to deal in good faith with the investors of Buffalo Thunder, and maybe start paying them?
