COARSEGOLD, Calif., Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- United States District Court Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill today issued the final order allowing for the reopening of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino. He stated in his order "Upon the NIGC's lifting the Closure Order, the Tribe may operate the Casino." 

The Judge was referring to yesterday's action wherein the Federal Government signed off on a final agreement with the newly elected Tribal Council. Today the court took the last step necessary to allow the Tribe to move forward and set an opening date.

"It's a great day for our Tribe and the people of Madera County," said Tribal Chairwoman Claudia Gonzales. "With the final legal documents in place, we can now continue to move quickly to reopen and put employees back to work. And while we don't yet have a specific date, we expect to announce it very shortly. Then we can join together - the Tribe and the Community - to celebrate a grand reopening."
