LHL's Stephen Solomon quoted in Union Tribune

Last week Solomon, Saltsman, and Jamieson filed a $550,000,000 damages claim on behalf of the San Pasqual band of Mission Indians against the state of CA. The claim is seeking lost profits resulting from Governor Schwarzenegger refusing to allow the California Gambling Control Commission to issue all of the slot machine licenses to which the tribe is entitled under its 1999 gambling compact with the state. 

San Pasqual's lawyer and Legal Help Lives own Stephen Solomon commented that "the state has breached its commitments to the tribe." Adding "they've been delaying for two years and if they're not going to issue the licenses then we want them to pay us our lost income." 

Mr. Solomon also commented that "in the end, the tribe would much rather have the machines than the money."
