Eight city residents who sued over alleged environmental violations caused by construction of the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore have appealed a federal judge’s decision to dismiss the case.
Judge Richard D. Bennett last month ruled in part that five plaintiffs lacked standing to file suit and CBAC Gaming LLC, which is operating the casino, has the proper state and federal environmental permits for the discharge coming from the site.
The lawsuit also named as defendants the mayor and City Council, the Baltimore Development Corp. and Maryland Chemical Co. Inc., which operated at the site from 1952 until 2008.
The lawsuit under appeal is Sherrill, et al. v. Mayor and City Council of Baltimore et al., 1:13-cv-02768-RDB.
