Commission to renew Gary casinos' licenses

The Indiana Gaming Commission voted unanimously to renew the gambling licenses for Majestic Star's two casinos in Gary.

Gary and the bankrupt company have been in a legal battle since 2008. A settlement of that lawsuit now appears near.

The deal could mean the city would finish building an access road to Majestic's Buffington Harbor property and Majestic would release $10 million owed to the city of Gary.

Majestic Star may also be getting a new owner.
