French Lick Partners File Second Suit
As reported by the Louisville Courier-Journal: "A legal feud between the partners in the Orange County casino project apparently has expanded with the filing of a second suit. "A subsidiary of Indianapolis-based Lauth Property Group has filed a lawsuit against Bloomington businessman Bill Cook, its partner in the French Lick project. The filing comes after the casino subsidiary of Cook Group filed a suit against Lauth earlier this month. "Both companies have remained mum about their conflict, and Orange County Circuit Judge Larry Blanton has sealed the lawsuits, blocking their content from the public.
"Blanton has scheduled a July 31 hearing to consider whether the suits should remain sealed.
".Cook and Lauth are partners in Blue Sky Casino LLC, which is developing the $382 million casino project that includes the restoration of two historic hotels in French Lick and West Baden. The casino is expected to open in November."
