WHITE EARTH, Minn. - A White Earth investigative entity is hoping the band can file an insurance claim to recover up to $1 million of the $5.8 million that band says was spent on the now-defunct Star Lake Casino project.

The Other Government Project, an investigatory committee set up by the White Earth Tribal Council, recommended the possible insurance claim as part of a plan of action to be considered in regards to the Star Lake Casino project. In order to make the project a go, the tribal attorney earlier agreed to waive the tribe's sovereign immunity from liability.
