New Mexico Racing Commission charged in lawsuit

New In New Mexico, the state’s Racing Commission has been charged in a lawsuit with sabotaging a company’s plans for a $50 million casino and racetrack in Raton, in favor of a rival operator.
The lawsuit, filed on behalf of the La Mesa Racetrack and Casino group, accuses former commissioner Marty Cope of “intentionally blocking the project because she was a friend of a rival.”
Current members of the Commission noted for the press that the allegations were made against a former group of Commissioners.
“This is a different Racing Commission under a different administration from the one that the lawsuit makes allegations against,” said current Chairman Rob Doughty.
The previous board revoked the La Mesa license, saying developers failed to open the casino by the target date and didn’t show they had adequate financing to complete the racetrack.
