A spokesman for Majestic Star would not say whether an appeal of the casino garage's design will affect the building's construction schedule. Yesterday, the Riverlife Task Force filed an appeal with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The appeal seeks to invalidate the Pittsburgh Planning Commission's approval of the garage, which the Task Force says dwarfs the casino and could ruin views of the city skyline. Construction of the casino began in December. The building is currently scheduled to open in May of next year.
