BROKEN ARROW, Oklahoma -

Broken Arrow officials will delay their review of engineering plans for a controversial casino partly because questions remain about whether a tribe can legally establish the facility at the proposed location.

City Manager David Wooden said in a news release Friday that officials had received an application from contractor FoxCor Inc., but they're not acting on it.

Kialegee Tribal Town wants to build the Red Clay Casino on land allotted to the Muscogee Creek Nation, of which the Kialegees are affiliated.

According to the Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/FPji2V), officials also say the city is awaiting the resolution of a federal lawsuit filed by Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who alleges the Wetumka-based Kialegees don't have jurisdiction over the property.

A federal judge has scheduled a May 2 hearing in the case.
