Penn National Gaming Inc. has asked a Maryland federal court to dismiss a lawsuit brought against the company for alleged securities violations inherent to its failed buyout deal earlier this year, claiming the legal action is an attempt by the plaintiffs to recover bad investment decisions.
A Maryland attorney who is a shareholder of Penn National Gaming Inc. has filed a styled class-action lawsuit against the publicly-traded gaming company and certain of its executives over the failed buyout attempt by two investment entities.
Harrah's Entertainment Inc., the world's largest casino company, said Tuesday that its board has accepted a $17.1 billion buyout offer from two private equity groups.
