WHEELING — An Ohio couple is suing Wheeling hotel-casino-racetrack operators, alleging insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Nancy Lee Miller and Rodney Miller of East Liverpool, Ohio, filed a complaint May 10 in Ohio Circuit Court against Wheeling Island Gaming Inc. Delaware North Companies Gaming and Entertainment Inc., et al, alleging failure to keep the Wheeling Island Hotel's restaurant premises reasonably safe.
