Legal dispute won’t stop ceremonial groundbreaking for Columbus casino

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Developers plan to show they’re ready for work to start on the fourth of Ohio’s planned casinos, in spite of a legal dispute.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is scheduled for Monday at the location for the 300,000-square-foot Columbus casino. Earlier ceremonies marked the start of construction at sites in Toledo and Cincinnati; an old Cleveland department store is being renovated to serve as the initial home of a Cleveland casino.

Voters approved the four casinos in 2009.

The developers say the Hollywood Casino Columbus is scheduled to open in late 2012. But first they’ll have to resolve a legal battle with the city that’s holding up water and sewer service to the site.
