BOSTON (AP) - The battle between state gambling regulators and the city of Boston over the license awarded to Steve Wynn to build a casino in Everett is heating up.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission on Tuesday filed a motion to have Boston’s 153-page lawsuit challenging the license dismissed, calling the suit “verbose, repetitive, argumentative and confusing.”

The lawsuit alleges regulators violated state law and their own rules in granting the license to Wynn, who wants to build a $1.7 billion resort casino in Everett.

The city says Wynn has not reached a financial compensation deal with the city and has not applied for necessary permits for the casino’s main entry, which goes through Boston.

A city spokeswoman says Mayor Marty Walsh’s administration has not ruled out the possibility on an injunction to block construction.
