MAHNOMEN - Mahnomen County will not appeal a federal court ruling affirming the Shooting Star Casino's placement into trust status, which exempts the facility owned by the White Earth Band of Chippewa from state property taxes.


The decision came after a 3-2 vote by the Mahnomen County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday. Commissioners Karen Ahmann, Wally Eid and Everett Kjelbertson voted not to appeal, while Jerry Dahl and Charlie Pazdernik voted for an appeal.
