Panel to examine Greenbrier casino day trip claims

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A West Virginia Lottery Commission panel will investigate allegations that day trippers have been allowed to gamble at The Greenbrier's casino in violation of state laws and Lottery regulations.

Lottery Commission chairman Ken Greear will head the three-member subcommittee. Media reports say Greear announced the investigation Tuesday.

Greear says the panel's findings will be presented during a Lottery Commission special work session on Nov. 27.

Lottery Director John Musgrave has said day trips to the casino promoted by charter bus companies are beyond the scope of the law that authorized the casino.

The Greenbrier's owner, Jim Justice, has said the resort ordered a stop to third-party advertising of bus trips to the casino after learning about the practice.
