SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - The $500,000 dispute between Peter Picknelly and Northeast Gaming will be heard in court.
A judge will hear two motions to dismiss this case in Hampden County Superior Court on April 17th.
Northeast Gaming owns the land Mohegan Sun wants to build on in Palmer.
Peter Picknelly, owner of Peter Pan Bus Lines, had a $500,000 investment with that group, which his lawyers say he transferred to a longtime business partner, Malcolm Getz. Picknelly believes he is free and clear from that initial investment.
Northeast Gaming believes Picknelly is still legally obligated to that investment with their group.
Peter Picknelly is currently a 50/50 partner with Penn National Gaming, who is trying to bring a casino to Springfield's North End.
