The Florida Supreme Court says that slot machines can be allowed anywhere in the state.
The high court on Friday let stand a lower court ruling that not only ends a battle over whether slots can be added to a Hialeah race track, but could rekindle a push to add slot machines in other parts of the state.
The court issued a one-page ruling saying it was dismissing the case. Five of the seven justices supported the order.
A three-judge panel of the 1ST District Court of Appeal last year upheld a 2009 law that allowed slots at a South Florida track although the track had been excluded from a 2004 state constitutional amendment permitting slots at other pari-mutuel facilities in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
