Donald Trump sues to strip his name from NJ casinos in 'disrepair'

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 01:20

A man walks past sandbags ready to be used to protect Trump Plaza Casino from water damage on the boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey in this file photoDonald Trump wants his name taken off two Atlantic City, New Jersey, casinos he founded but no longer controls, saying in a lawsuit that they have become so dilapidated that they damage his brand image. Trump says Trump Entertainment Properties, which owns and operates the Trump Taj Mahal and Trump Plaza, have let the casinos fall into “an utter state of disrepair,” said a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in New Jersey Superior Court. The Plaza in particular, the lawsuit states, “has failed to meet industry standards across a wide range of categories, ranging from food and beverage services to overall cleanliness of the property.” Trump founded the Plaza in 1984 and helped usher in a new era in Atlantic City, bringing in big name concert groups such as the Rolling Stones, along with high-profile boxers including heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Trump's stake in Trump Entertainment Properties was wiped out when the firm filed for bankruptcy in 2009.
