NEW YORK CITY-Las Vegas-based Park Place Entertainment Corp. yesterday won its bid for summary judgment in a lawsuit claiming that the gaming company interfered with competitors’ attempts to develop a casino in the Catskills.

US District Court Judge Colleen McMahon decided to dismiss all claims made by Catskill Development LLC, Monticello Raceway Development Company LLC. and Mohawk Management, LLC. The suit alleged that Park Place attempted to thwart efforts to develop a casino with the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe in the Catskill Mountains. The decision was handed down in White Plains.

“We’re delighted by today’s federal court decision, which vindicates in unambiguous terms the position that Park Place has taken from the beginning,” says Park Place Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer Kim Sinatra. “Our dealings with the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe were fair, proper and above board. Park Place will continue to work with the Tribe to achieve the goal of creating a world-class casino resort in New York’s Catskill Mountains — a resort that will bring economic opportunity to the Tribe and economic development to the region.”

Park Place owns, manages or has an interest in 28 gaming properties operating under the Caesars, Bally’s, Flamingo, Grand Casinos, Hilton and Paris brand names with a total of approximately two million sf of gaming space, more than 28,000 hotel rooms and 55,000 employees worldwide.
