BRADENTON, Fla. - Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said yesterday that he would consult with the Legislature since the state Supreme Court will not revisit its ruling invalidating a gambling compact Crist signed with the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

The Florida Supreme Court late Thursday denied motions by Crist and the Seminole Tribe seeking a rehearing on a ruling the court issued on July 3. The court ruled that Crist, who is a Republican, did not have unilateral authority to negotiate a controversial gaming compact with the tribe authorizing Las Vegas-style gambling on the Seminole's land in Florida.
