Gulfside Casino had filed an appeal to get the Arkansas Racing Commission to recognised its application for Pope County casino but failed to achieve it.
US.- The Pope County casino in Arkansas has drawn major interest in the gaming industry. That’s why Gulfside Casino had filed an appeal to get the Racing Commission to recognise its application. However, the segment’s governing body denied such a request.
“The Administrative Procedures Act requires that you go through this step before you can seek judicial review. That’s what we’ve done today. And now we’ve filed a complaint with Pulaski County Circuit Court, seeking a review of the Racing Commission’s decision,” Casey Castleberry said.
Furthermore, the commission reopened the application process for the Pope County casino. That way, casinos get a chance to get letters of support from the county.
Cherokee Nation Businesses has support from the Pope County Quorum Court and assessed they should reduce it to 10 days.
“Ninety days is too long and it’s not necessary. It would unduly delay the construction of Legends Resort and Casino in Pope County,” Cherokee Nation Attorney Scott Richardson said.
“While this will open up another application window for potential vendors, no other considerations will be accepted by members of the Pope County Quorum Court,” local Judge Ben Cross said.
