The Interview: Robert J. Norton

Amid legal wrangling and a ballot fight, it seemed as though the casino proposed for Arundel Mills would never become a reality.

Nearly two years ago, the state’s slots commission awarded Anne Arundel County‘s sole slots license to Baltimore developer Cordish Cos. But construction began only this past January.

That’s because Cordish battled numerous opponents, including the Maryland Jockey Club, which had sought to steer the license to Laurel Park race course in an attempt to boost the track’s ailing business. A legal fight moved to a countywide ballot referendum, in which voters affirmed last fall Cordish’s right to build the casino at the mall.
