Maryland’s highest court has ruled that a referendum on whether to allow slots at Arundel Mills mall should appear on the ballot in November, in a decision that came just hours after justices heard arguments on a lower court decision that overturned a challenge to zoning for the massive project.

Lawyers for community groups and the Maryland Jockey Club, which financed a successful referendum effort to challenge zoning approval for Baltimore-based Cordish Cos. to build the state’s largest slots casino, appealed the decision that the ballot question is not allowed under state law.
