During the regular meeting of the Tribal Council on Jan. 17, members received a status update on the latest bout of litigation surrounding the efforts of CN Entertainment to build a casino near Russellville in Pope County, Ark.
A recent court decision has resulted in further delay, though CN Businesses CEO Chuck Garrett said the finding of the court was expected.
“That case was brought by one of the other candidates for the license, (Gulfside Casino Partnership) out of Mississippi,” Garrett said. “They were disappointed when we received the license, and they filed a lawsuit against the Arkansas Racing Commission.”
Garrett said Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox had ruled against the CN in other cases.
