The dispute between Governor Keven Stitt and Oklahoma's Gaming Tribes continues, two tribes are being rejected from joining the ongoing lawsuit.

The parties have been battling for months over whether the gaming compacts that allow for most casino gaming expired on Jan. 1, or automatically renewed.

Both Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians and the Kialegee Tribal Town filed to join the lawsuit.

The other tribes are opposing their intervention because neither have gaming operations in Oklahoma.
