The legal battle between KED and the state of Nevada continues to be a long, drawn-out affair. The two parties have been fighting for years over the legality of online gambling in Nevada, with no clear winner yet.

The Minnow Lake Restoration Group has launched a legal challenge to the city of Greater Sudbury’s latest Kingsway Entertainment District report. Ian Wood, the city’s executive director of Strategic Initiatives, Communications, and Citizen Service, and Mayor Brian Bigger prepared the report, and the allegation is that not all necessary material was provided.

The Minnow Lake Restoration Group argues that the council’s decision was based on incomplete knowledge because of the missing material. As a result, the organization claims that the KED site choice should be overturned. As a result, the group has decided to seek a judicial review of the city council’s decision to continue with the location on the outskirts of town.

Presenting the Evidence

Gillespie Law has formally submitted the Minnow Lake Restoration Group’s evidence with the court and municipal attorneys. This was filed on September 17, 2021, and it is nearly completely made up of transcripts from public meetings of local elected authorities and employees. The group issued a press statement on the topic this week.

The firm included a sample of the transcripts in the publication, which they utilized as evidence in their case against the KED initiative. One of their reasons is that councillors requested that a particular piece of KED information be included in the PricewaterhouseCoopers report released in June, although this was not the case.

The group claims that the Mayor, Council, and Senior Staff committed numerous legal mistakes and failed to observe the norm of procedural fairness in their application for court review. As a result, material that might have influenced the council’s vote on the proposal was left out. Councillors have asked for information on a Climate Energy and Emissions Plan, as well as an update from Gateway Casinos & Entertainment, which was planning to build a casino in the new arena.

Lawyer Gillespie informed a local news station that the city may decide to submit further material on the specified subjects for consideration. He also said that they are addressing the situation with the city, and that if they are unable to reach an arrangement, the court would assist them. He concluded by stating that the ultimate objective is for the city to follow the procedure that the public and some council members anticipated.

Bribery Perplexity

Ward 3 councillor Gerry Montpellier was previously embroiled in a scandal when one of his social media postings was misunderstood, according to him. Mr. Montpellier said that he did not vote because he had been contacted by Dario Zulich officials who suggested that KED convey the benefits of the project to him. According to the councillor, this was not a bribery attempt, but rather a straightforward presentation of facts.

Petition on the Internet

Some Greater Sudbury residents are dissatisfied with the project’s location on the outskirts of the city. Over 2,300 people have signed an online petition calling for a vote to be held at the next municipal elections to determine whether to construct the KED or renovate the downtown arena. Patrick Crowe started the petition, claiming that people without a vehicle would find it much more difficult to get to the KED site.
