SugarHouse Investors Try to Stop 2nd Philly Casino

Local investors in Philadelphia's SugarHouse Casino are trying to stop the state gaming  board from issuing a second slots license in the city.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the minority partner in SugarHouse, RPRS Gaming  L.P., argues the board doesn't have the authority to award a license that it previously revoked. Three years ago, the board revoked the license for a failed Foxwoods casino project in the city.

The local SugarHouse investors also say a second casino license in the city would cause them “irreparable injury.”

Gaming  board spokesman Richard McGarvey say the agency is reviewing the investors' claim.
