Showboat Development has reportedly re-filed in Pennsylvania a lawsuit related to the operating rights of slot machines at Charles Town Races. A similar lawsuit filed in Nevada last year was dismissed Jan. 25 because of a lack of jurisdiction.
A Nevada court on Jan. 25 dismissed a lawsuit that attempted to label Charles Town Races as a casino and force racetrack owner Penn National Gaming to pay a management fee to a previous owner of the track. The suit, which was filed by Showboat Development, was dismissed on the grounds that case should be heard in West Virginia, where the track is located.
Penn National Gaming reported a 67.3% increase in revenue and a 52.5% increase in net income for the third quarter. In other news, the company is seeking dismissal of a lawsuit filed against Charles Town Races by Showboat Development over the rights to operate slot machines and video lottery terminals at the company's West Virginia racetrack. If the case is not dismissed, Penn National wants the case moved out of Nevada to a West Virginia court.
