PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) - Construction of a state-owned casino in southeast Kansas won’t resume for a while.

Kansas Crossing spokeswoman Carrie Tedore told The Pittsburg Morning Sun (http://bit.ly/1Q1S8tp ) the company will report on the status of a lawsuit involving the casino at the end of November, and a decision will be made then on whether to seek another 90-day extension on completing the casino.

The southeast Kansas casino is the last of four nontribal casinos allowed under a Kansas law.

Castle Rock Casino, which submitted a failed bid for the casino, filed a lawsuit against the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission and the Kansas Gaming Facility Review Board, arguing the board made the wrong decision in awarding the casino contract and didn’t follow state law.

The commission says the board used proper procedures.
