LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas judge denied a casino’s motion for contempt, alleging that a state commission did not follow its own rules and issue the company a casino license within 30 days of the judge’s previous ruling.

Pulaski County Circuit Judge Tim Fox’s Thursday ruling did not approve Gulfside Casino Resort’s contempt request against the Racing Commission. However the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports the judge ruled that Gulfside’s competitor, Legends Resort and Casino LLC, a limited liability company by Oklahoma-based Cherokee Nation Businesses, does not qualify for the Pope County license.
