Gaming Law Review
Nelson Mullins partner Katherine Baker recently participated in a roundtable discussion among tribal gaming experts resulting in a two-part publication for the Gaming Law Review in the July/August and September 2023 editions, titled “TRIBAL ROUNDTABLE – PROPOSED Bureau of Indian Affairs CHANGES.” Part one discusses recently proposed changes to the Bureau of Indian Affairs’ (BIA) rules regarding the land into trust process and changes to Class III gaming, and how these new policies can affect the gaming industry.
Part two goes on to discuss the impact of a provision proposed by the BIA that would allow compacts between states and tribes to include provisions addressing and allowing i-gaming, including outside of Indian lands, along with an analysis of the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act and other federal gaming statutes in this context.
Baker is the Chair of the Gaming Industry Group at the firm and assists casino gaming, sports betting, and fantasy sports operators, vendors, and entrepreneurs to navigate the state and federal commercial and tribal gaming landscape.
