Mississippi rejects casino site by former NBA team owner

Sunday 13th December 2020

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) -- The Mississippi Supreme Court has affirmed the rejection of a proposed casino site on the Gulf Coast.

Justices on Thursday affirmed a circuit court ruling that said the site did not meet standards set in state law.

The development did not have a direct connection to property that touches the coastal waters.

Mississippi law allows state-regulated casinos only along the waters of the Mississippi River or over or near the waters of the Gulf Coast.

The rejected site proposal came from Ray Woolridge.
