A federal court has dismissed a suit by the Keystone Development Redevelopment Partners, LLC against the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

    The Third Circuit US Court of Appeals reversed the decision by the district court for the denial of a Category 2 casino license. Keystone Development, owned by Donald Trump, lost a licensing bid in Philadelphia in 2006.

    Additionally, the court ruled Gaming Control Board members are “entitled to absolute, quasi-judicial immunity from lawsuits brought against them in their individual capacities based on the exercise of their duties.”

    You can read the full decision by the court on the Gaming Control Board’s website.
