THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2002

The racetrack industry in Arizona launched another suit aimed at stopping tribes from continued gaming.

The suit was filed in state court against outgoing Gov. Jane Hull (R). She has indicated she would sign compacts with 17 tribes because voters approved a ballot initiative to do so.

The racetracks had their own measure it lost by a 4-1 margin. They have a suit in the federal court system that they are losing.
