WASHINGTON —

The Supreme Court will decide whether the Bay Mills Indian Community's casino in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula can be ordered closed by a judge.

The high court on Monday agreed to hear an appeal from state officials, who say they can order the casino to be closed because it is not on the tribe's lands. A federal judge agreed and issued an injunction ordering the casino closed in 2011. The Vanderbilt casino opened in November 2010 and is located about 125 miles south of the Bay Mills reservation in the Upper Peninsula.

The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday threw out the judge's injunction last year.

Justices will hear arguments in the fall.
