Casino Investigator Named

Eric Holder will look into the choice of Rosemont for the state's tenth casino license.

He also will investigate the bankrupt Emerald Casino. The Gaming Board has been trying to strip Emerald of its license since January 2001 because it said top Emerald officials lied to regulators and some investors had alleged ties to organized crime.

Emerald plans to sell its license to Isle of Capri Casinos Incorporated.
