Judge approves limited seizure of Santee funds

Money for economic development and graduation caps and gowns can be seized by
federal officials to offset more than $1 million the Santee Sioux Tribe owes
for operating its illegal casino, a federal judge in Omaha ruled Friday.
U.S. District Judge William Cambridge ordered $183,465 seized from Santee
bank accounts. U.S. Attorney Tom Monaghan, who froze the tribal accounts on
Oct. 27, originally sought $1.8 million.

But last month, federal attorneys agreed that $1.3 million of that sum was
legally exempt. About $500,000 remained frozen as of Friday, with federal
officials seeking $288,469. Cambridge, however, said the government could not
legally seize $105,000 held in an escrow account.  <SNIP>    (entire story at
