The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled last week in favor of the SugarHouse Casino and against Mayor Michael Nutter, who tried to revoke riparian rights previously granted by Mayor John Street's administration. The decision gives the right to SugarHouse Casino to build on state-owned land beneath the Delaware River.

SugarHouse Spokeswoman Leigh Whitaker said "We're absolutely ecstatic. This gives us full control over our site, and allows us to build our project as approved by the city Planning Commission. This is significant for us in terms of moving the project forward."

A senior adviser for Mayor Nutter, Terry Gillen, said "It's a disappointment." She would not comment further regarding the details of the ruling.

A spokesman for Senator Vince Fumo, Gary Tuma, said "The decision effectively removes the General Assembly's exclusive authority to control public land along the waterfront. The court authorized the transfer of state-owned land to a casino without payment to the state."
