Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 133 F.3d 922 (8th Cir. 1998) Submitted Dec. 10, 1997. Filed Jan. 7, 1998

Before FAGG, BEAM, and MORRIS SHEPPARD ARNOLD, Circuit Judges.


Harbor Venture, Inc., Horseshoe Casinos, L.L.C., and Missouri River Equities, Inc. appeal the district court's ruling rejecting their contention that a gambling enterprise is permitted on real estate governed by the terms of a 1976 consent decree. After de novo review, we are satisfied the district court correctly interpreted the consent decree and the record supports the district court's ruling. Because a comprehensive opinion in this case would lack precedential value, we affirm for the reasons set forth in the district court's well-reasoned opinion. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
