While arguing in the case against Larvita (Haven’s Garden) Assistant Attorney General Kaitrin Vohs said that the bars and restaurants at the Indian casinos need to stay open so they can continue to gain revenue.
The statement above according to Nathan Hansen the lawyer representing Haven’s Garden in the case. Was brought on by Mr. Hansen claiming an equal protection violation on behalf of Larvita. Cited numerous bars and restaurants on tribal lands in Minnesota have been permitted to remain open for on-premises consumption of food and beverages.
The Assistant AG’s argument was made during a 1:30 hearing which was the same time Governor Walz was extending the shutdown for all other bars and restaurants in Minnesota. With the exception of allowing outdoor dining in the freezing cold.
Governor Walz has for political reasons allowed the casino’s bars and restaurants to stay open. He is picking winners and losers.
