Under scrutiny for his decision granting a contract to Aqueduct Entertainment Group to operate video lottery gaming at Aqueduct race track, New York Gov. David Paterson on Feb. 16 released documents related to the contract.
Frustrated by the delay in picking an Aqueduct casino operator, New York Gov. David Paterson said he is moving to publicly name his choice in hopes of putting pressure on legislative leaders to make a decision.
The long and twisting turns of efforts to develop a casino at Aqueduct racetrack has gone to a new venue: state court. SL Green Realty Corp., a Manhattan real estate company, has sued Buffalo-based Delaware North for breach of contract and other causes with allegations that include taking confidential information it obtained from SL Green for use in its bid for the casino.
New York Gov. David A. Paterson, Senate Majority Leader Malcolm A. Smith and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver announced April 17 that New York State is seeking new proposals to select an experienced gaming operator to build and operate a video lottery terminal facility at Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens.
