OXFORD, Maine (AP) - Department of Environmental Protection officials and the Attorney General's Office are discussing what course of action to take after a judge nullified a development permit for Maine's newest casino.
Justice Michaela Murphy has vacated the permit for the Oxford Casino, which opened in June.
Murphy agreed with the Androscoggin River Alliance, which argued the DEP wrongly granted the permit after considering just the first phase of the three-phase project.
Attorney Stephen Hinchman, who represents the alliance, said the casino isn't licensed to operate now that the permit's been vacated.
But a lawyer for the casino owner said that's not true. He said the ruling deals only with the technical aspects of one permit.
