Why would Trump want another casino there as competition? Makes no sense.

Because enforcing the covenant means they can extract a cash settlement out of them to drop it.

Can't the state and the Mayor get involved in this. They are affecting peoples lives. This is about a college campus. They can't even get the Revel deal done and now they are fighting over the Showboat. The Taj was almost out of business a couple of months ago. Big deal, security would have to work a little harder to keep underage gamblers out of the casino.

I think that is the reason and I don't think it is a little work either. If there are a ton of 18-20 year olds running around where there is free alcohol I can just picture the amount of trouble they will get in.

Boy the AC casino business is like a soap opera. Something happens every day but nothing really changes.

Another reason not to go to the Taj. The Taj's statement on this said: "You do not see a college on the Las Vegas strip."

What bullshit. You can practically throw a stone from UNLV and hit Hard Rock Casino.

It's going to take a lot of time in court to get that condition removed from the contract.

So the Taj has a convenient that says there has to be a casino and Caesars has a deed restriction saying there can't be a casino. Which one supersedes?
I can see a college next door doesn't help Taj as most students would be underaged and can't gamble or drink in the clubs. A casino hotel next door would probably bring more business in. I agree with others though that this is probably just a chance to get some money out of the deal.

Shouldn't that really say Icahn and not Trump?
