The Pennsylvania Supreme Court upheld the decision to allow the development of two waterfront casinos in Philadelphia.
The decision affirms the decision of state regulators to allow Foxwoods Casino Philadelphia and SugarHouse Casino to open slots parlors on Columbus Boulevard in Philadelphia. The case was brought by a rival casino proposal whose application was rejected.
However, both casinos must still get city approvals. The casinos could open as early as next year, pending city approvals.
It's likely neighborhood groups, who have fought the proposals, will continue their opposition.
