Snubbed Saipan bidder may appeal decision

    Marianas Star Entertainment, which has been shut out of bidding for a casino license in Saipan, may appeal the decision, according to local media reports. The Hong Kong business was rejected for allegedly failing to deposit $30 million in an escrow account by a May 5th deadline. The company claims it did meet the deadline, the report said. The rival bidder for the $2 billion resort project, Best Sunshine International, deposited its funds on May 3, the report said, citing a note from the Bank of Guam to Governor Eloy Inos.
