Gulfstream files its brief in gambling case against gov

Gulfstream Racetrack has filed its amicus curiae brief in support of the lawsuit by House Speaker Marco Rubio against Gov. Charlie Crist for signing the 25-year gambling compact with the Seminole Tribe. It follows the Senate, which filed earlier today. Gulfstream's prime arguments:

* The gov doesn't have the authority to bind the state to the compact;

* Federal law doesn't give the governor authority to allow Class III gaming;

* The 45-day deadline on the Secretary of the Interior has no impact on the court.
