California Indian casinos embroiled in turmoil

This photo taken Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, shows the shuttered Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in Coarsegold, Calif. Federal officials closed the casino in October citing safety reasons when an armed faction of the Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians launched a raid, attempting to take control of the casino. Experts say historical factors and a recent influx of money, which provides income, jobs, housing and benefits to many tribal members, has helped spark such internal friction among tribes. (AP Photo/Scott Smith)COARSEGOLD, Calif.
