ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland judge has rejected a lawsuit seeking to overturn gambling expansion in Maryland.

Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Ronald Silkworth released his decision on Tuesday.

Opponents to the ballot question to allow table games like blackjack and a casino in Prince George’s County contended that a majority of registered voters in the state would need to approve the proposal, not just a majority of people who voted on the ballot question in November.

But Silkworth described that as “not just an absurdly high standard,” even more than required for amendments to the State Constitution. Those are approved by a majority of votes cast on the question.
