A State College mini-casino project runs into stiff opposition from a Philadelphia rival

Ira M. Lubert wants to open a mini-casino in College Township, just outside State College. Cordish Gaming, which opened the Live! Casino and Hotel Philadelphia in South Philly, is challenging his application. Stadium Casino RE claims that Luberts' application violates state law because he transferred ownership stakes in the casino to undisclosed, unlicensed investors. The board will make a decision on the license at a later date.   Stadium Casino says that two wealthy real estate developers with strong Penn State ties are behind the project.
