Fight Over Slots Parlor Goes To Court

By Meymo Lyons

The fight over a proposed slots parlor at a suburban Maryland shopping mall is heading to court amid allegations a developer hired a woman to derail an eventually successful petition drive against the casino.

Baltimore-based firm Cordish Cos. is suing the Anne Arundel County elections board, which it says overlooked fraud in the petition drive against the proposed Arundel Mills Mall Casino.

An attorney for the developer denies the claims made in an affidavit filed by opponents, which include a citizens group and the Maryland Jockey Club, the operator of the Laurel and Pimlico race tracks. The jockey club says the casino will put Laurel Park out of business.

The trial is scheduled to begin Monday.
