Magna Entertainment Corp.
wants a "freeze" of "the entire video lottery licensing process, all because of its own inability to deliver the required fee at the required time," the Maryland
attorney general's office said in a court filing yesterday that challenges the company's claim that the state slots bidding process was unconstitutional. Lawyers for the state are arguing that a lawsuit from the Canadian owners of the Laurel Park racetrack should be dismissed because the company should make its case first to a governor-appointed Board of Contract Appeals. The slots commission threw out the bid this month because the company failed to submit $28.5 million in required licensing fees.
