The Prairie Band Potawatomie Nation wants a judge to stop Harrah’s Entertainment Inc.


The Prairie Band Potawatomie Nation wants a judge to stop Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. from going forward with plans to build and manage a Kansas casino.

The tribe operates a casino that Harrah’s once managed. It told Shawnee County District Judge David Bruns on Friday Harrah’s violated a noncompete agreement it signed with the tribe in January.

The agreement said Harrah’s would not develop, promote or encourage expansion of gambling in Kansas for a year and would not manage or operate a casino for two years.
