TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation presents its case on Friday in Shawnee County District Court. It says Harrah's violated a non-compete agreement it signed in January after managing the tribe's casino north of Topeka for nearly a decade.

The tribe says the agreement stated Harrah's wouldn't develop, promote or encourage the expansion of gambling for a year and that it wouldn't own, operate or manage a casino for two years.

The casino review board last week awarded Harrah's the contract for the casino in Mulvane. Harrah's will manage the facility while the gambling will be owned by the Kansas Lottery.
