The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled an anti-gambling group fighting Governor John Kasich's decision to legalize video lottery terminals at seven horse tracks lacks standing to sue, while another plaintiff may continue his challenge.

Ohio’s primary is next Tuesday, and both parties are targeting voters here.

A conservative group brought its arguments against Ohio's seven "racinos" to the Ohio Supreme Court Tuesday. 

A coalition of gambling interests is citing a recent Ohio Supreme Court decision involving Governor John Kasich's privatized job-creation agency, JobsOhio, as grounds to dismiss a separate lawsuit challenging video lottery terminals at horse tracks.

The 10th Ohio Circuit court of appeals says the business group the Ohio Roundtable lacks the legal standing to challenge Governor John Kasich's decision to legalize video lottery terminals at seven horse tracks.
