Trump Entertainment Resorts
A hearing is set for Thursday in a dispute between Donald and Ivanka Trump and the casino company he once ran, over whether Atlantic City’s struggling Taj Mahal casino can continue to use the Trump name.
The action is part of a lawsuit Donald Trump and his daughter are pressing against Trump Entertainment — which they no longer control or are involved with — to have their name stripped from the Trump Taj Mahal casino, and the company itself.
Trump Entertainment Resorts filed for bankruptcy Tuesday and threatened to shut down the Taj Mahal Casino Resort, which would make it the fifth Atlantic City casino to close this year.
A popular restaurant at Trump Plaza is suing the Atlantic City casino, asking a judge to permit it to keep operating after the casino shuts down on Sept. 16.
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement made way for some girls on Santa’s naughty list. It would be Atlantic City’s first so-called “gentlemen’s club” inside a casino in the 33-year history of legalized gambling there.
The Atlantic City casino that once bore Donald Trump’s name was changing hands Monday. The casino was being bought by Texas-based Landry’s Restaurants, which is renaming it the Golden Nugget Atlantic City.
