SYDNEY -- Crown Resorts' hopes of opening the casino in its $1.69 billion skyscraper hotel in Sydney have been thrown into doubt after an inquiry concluded the company is "not suitable" to hold a gaming license.

The finding by Patricia Bergin, former chief justice of the New South Wales Supreme Court, that Crown's casinos in Melbourne and Perth were used for money laundering for a number of years will now go to the state's Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority for further action.
