LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A federal judge has put the brakes on plans to build an American Indian casino in Lansing.

Judge Robert Jonker in Grand Rapids approved a preliminary injunction against the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.

The tribe wants to build a $245 million casino in the capital city, and has the Lansing Mayor's support, but other tribes and top state leaders oppose the project.

The injunction means the Sault Ste. Marie tribe cannot ask the federal government to put land in trust for the casino.

The state says the tribe has failed to reach revenue-sharing agreements with other tribes.

The tribe can appeal Tuesday's ruling, but the process could take more than a year.
