Gambling interests want Ohio slots case dismissed

Written by 


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A coalition of gambling interests is citing a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision involving Gov. John Kasich's privatized job-creation agency, JobsOhio, as grounds to dismiss a separate lawsuit challenging slots-like video lottery terminals.

Both cases involve a nonprofit organization's legal standing to sue the Kasich administration for alleged constitutional violations.

The high court decided last month that ProgressOhio, a liberal policy group, and other parties lacked standing to pursue constitutional challenge to JobsOhio, sidelining the case.

Casino companies and race track operators jointly told the Supreme Court Wednesday that that precedent applies in a lawsuit brought by the Ohio Roundtable, an anti-gambling group, challenging Kasich's legalization of VLTs at Ohio's seven horse tracks.

Justices previously indicated they'd hold judgment in the Roundtable case until the JobsOhio issue was decided.
