The Detroit News reports "an ongoing investigation into the investors of the three Detroit casino groups -- MGM Grand, Atwater (later known as MotorCity) and Greektown -- to determine problems they would encounter obtaining casino licenses... The News pinpointed, through documents and on-the-record interviews, reasons why local investors would be forced to sell out -- even though in most cases, state law prevented the public disclosure of those reasons.... The News' investigation into the Greektown investors revealed patterns of questionable business practices that stretched over the past 20 years."
