A group against bringing a casino to Seneca County area is taking its fight to court.

It has to do with plans by Wilmorite to build a casino in the Town of Tyre in Seneca County and now members of "Casino Free Tyre" are suing the town.

The group says town officials manipulated the process to push through a casino in Tyre and claim open meetings laws were violated. The 57 plaintiffs say decisions were made without proper notice to the public.

The lawsuit goes before a judge at 10 a.m.
