Shelbyville's Indiana Live Casino is getting a new name—Indiana Grand Casino—now that the venue has parted ways with a management company from which it licensed the name.
The move is the latest fallout from the racino's legal tangle with Maryland-based Cordish Cos., which managed the venue from its opening in 2008 until 2010. Cordish claims in a lawsuit that it was the subject of a smear campaign that cast the company as incompetent in its role at Indiana Live.
"Other than the new casino name, guests won’t notice any other changes as a result of the name change,” said Tom Dingman, Indiana Live's general manager.
The name change could be temporary because the racino is in bankruptcy, and is considering offers from suitors, including Centaur, owner of Hoosier Park in Anderson.
