The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court sided with the state's Gaming Control Board last week, rejecting claims by a Donald Trump-led development group that it had a right to the casino license issued to Foxwoods in 2006. Keystone Redevelopment Partners, led by Trump and Trump Entertainment, had originally applied for one of the casino licenses issued in 2006. More than two years after the license was issued, Keystone filed claims to intervene in the troubled Foxwoods project, claiming, among other things, that the company had a right to the license issued to Foxwoods in 2006. Last week's court opinion upholds a previous decision by the Gaming Control Board. Meanwhile, construction of the Foxwoods casino in Philadelphia has yet to begin. Gaming mogul Steve Wynn walked away from the project last spring, after attempting to step in and push the development forward.
