NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - The battle between supporters and opponents of table games at Newport Grand has moved into a Superior Court courtroom.

The Newport Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/IX5CGL ) that the Newport Grand has sued the anti-casino group, accusing it of campaign finance violations. It wants the group halted from collecting campaign donations and spending money until the state Board of Elections rules.

Lawyers for Newport Grand argued the anti-casino group listed major donors who did not list their place of employment or if they had a direct or indirect affiliation with operators of a gambling facility as required by law.

David Prentiss, the lawyer for casino opponents, said Newport Grand is abusing the legal process and he plans to file a counter-lawsuit.

A state referendum Nov. 4 asks voters if they support table games at Newport Grand.
