Yahoo! National News - Sun, 02/08/2015 - 07:07

People walk outside the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic CityThe planned sale of the shuttered Revel Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to a Florida developer has been thrown into jeopardy following a decision by a U.S. federal appeals court that would change the terms of the transaction, according to court documents. The sale to Florida developer Glen Straub, who bought Revel in bankruptcy court for $95.4 million, had been expected to be completed on Saturday. The decision by the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Court on Friday reversed a lower court decision against one of those tenants, IDEA Boardwalk LLC, which had sought to block the sale while it could appeal to protect its property rights. The Wall Street Journal quoted Stuart J. Moskovitz, an attorney representing Straub, as saying on Friday that the buyer might walk away from the sale if an appeal interfered with the deal, even if it means losing his $10 million deposit.
