Appeals to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board's November decision to award Philadelphia's second casino license to Live! Hotel & Casino in South Philadelphia moved forward Monday.

The court denied a motion by SugarHouse Casino to force the Gaming Board to engage in further fact finding and also set May 4 as the deadline for Market East Associates L.P., PHL Local Gaming L.L.C., and Sugarhouse HSP Gaming L.P. to file briefs explaining why they believe the board's decision should be overturned

The gaming regulators then have 30 days to respond. No oral argments have been scheduled.
