LOUIS — The Eighth Circuit rendered a very similar opinion to its 2019 ruling in this dispute between the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe and South Dakota, which seeks a tax on $24 million worth of renovation work performed by a nonmember contractor on the tribe’s Royal River Casino & Hotel. As then, the lower court was wrong to side with the tribe, which must pay the tax.
