N.Y. court hears casino compact case
Facebook Twitter Email

The New York Appellate Court on Monday heard arguments in a case challenging Gov. George Pataki's approval of a casino compact with the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation.

Casino mogul Donald Trump and the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce are challenging the deal. They say Pataki can't approve compacts without consent of the Legislature, an argument the state Supreme Court upheld.

The case is expected to have little effect on existing casino deals negotiated by Pataki. Six new compacts have already been approved by the Legislature.
