Two bidders won’t sue over casino award

Two companies that were turned down by Maryland gambling regulators in their bids to open a casino in Prince George’s County will not challenge the award of the casino license to the successful bidder, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Agency said Tuesday.

The license was awarded on Dec. 20, 2013, to MGM National Harbor, following a seven-month process led by the Video Lottery Facility Location Commission.

Prince George’s Racing Ventures LLC and Maryland Casino LLC have signed a document that ends their ability to sue over the award to MGM.

A $500,000 litigation/protest bond submitted by each company was returned to them, along with PGRV’s initial license fee of $18 million and Maryland Casino’s $28.5 million.
