Kansas high court to hear arguments in casino project

Associated Press - December 31, 2016 1:23 pm

The Kansas Supreme Court has ruled in favor of two men who were charged with aggravated battery but said they were acting in self-defense in stabbing or shooting others.

The Kansas Supreme Court will hear arguments in a lawsuit involving a southeast Kansas casino in January.

Oral arguments in the lawsuit over the Kansas Crossing Casino are scheduled to be held before the state Supreme Court on January 25.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports (http://j.mp/2ipPsf3) the casino was awarded the Southeast Zone license, for the final of four state-owned casinos by the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission in July of 2015.

Cherokee County and investors in Castle Rock Casino sued, claiming the Kansas Gaming Facility Review Board didn’t follow state law when it chose Kansas Crossing over the much larger Castle Rock project.
