Court Date For Seneca County Casino Opponents

Tyre, NY -- Opponents of a proposed casino in Seneca County say the development would put an end to their rural way of life and put some farms nearby out of business.

 The state is now considering a proposal from Rochester developer Wilmorite to build a $350 million casino near Thruway exit 41, in the town of Tyre.

Desiree Dawley, with the group Casino Free Tyre, says they've decided to sue to keep the casino out of the town.

They have a first appearance before a judge next week.
