The Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City is likely to remain open until Dec. 20, as its parent company continues to negotiate for financial aid from the city or the State of New Jersey, the bankrupt Trump Entertainment Resorts said Friday. However, some employees already started working fewer hours this week, Kathleen McSweeney, senior vice president of market operations for Trump Entertainment, said in a statement. The Taj Mahal closed one of its hotel towers Monday, and at that point still planned to close the casino next Friday, according to a Nov. 26 petition on its closing plans filed with the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

A bid in bankruptcy court to set aside a labor contract for 1,136 employees at Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal casino has set up a pitched battle between Unite Here Local 54 and Carl Icahn. Icahn, a billionaire investor known for taking control of financially distressed businesses by buying debt at a discount, controls the fate of Trump Entertainment Resorts because he owns $286 million in first-lien debt and stands first in line to be paid in any bankruptcy deal. As a condition of keeping Trump Taj Mahal open, Icahn wants massive concessions from labor and government.

ATLANTIC CITY - Vera Coking famously refused to sell to Donald Trump. But in the end, she sold to Carl Icahn. Property records in Atlantic County show that Coking's famous but now-vacant white house, in the shadow of the famous but now-shuttered Trump Plaza, is now owned by IEH Enterprises - Icahn. The house at 127 S. Columbia Place was sold at auction in August for $583,000. At the time, Atlantic City lawyer Pat Agnellini said he was the bidder on site - and on the phone - who walked away with the winning bid. Agnellini declined to say at the time whom he represented other than himself, or what the plans were for the property.

Trump Entertainment Resorts has come out a loser in the Pennsylvania casino market. Again. The U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday rejected the two-year bid of the company - known for its three Atlantic City casinos and its high-profile partial owner Donald Trump - to overturn a 2006 ruling by the state Gaming Control Board. Trump, using the name Keystone Redevelopment Partners LLC, pitched a casino at the old Budd Co. plant in Nicetown. The board rejected Trump's bid for one of two casino licenses in Philadelphia, in part because it worried he would use the local casino to draw customers to Atlantic City, where the tax rate on gambling profits is lower.

TRENTON - Ready. Set. Go get married! A couple of New Jersey lawmakers are proposing a bill to eliminate the state's 72-hour waiting period for couples seeking a license to wed. Assemblyman Louis Greenwald, D-Voorhees, and state Sen. Nicholas Scutari, D-Linden, argue that the law is antiquated - it dates back to 1934 - and getting rid of it would give New Jersey a competitive edge in the wedding-tourism market. Other nearby states, like New York and Delaware, have only 24-hour waiting periods.

A federal bankruptcy judge on Friday allowed the owners of Atlantic City's bankrupt Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort to void its contract with its 1,100 union workers. Whether the $15 million in savings will be enough to keep the doors of the troubled casino open is nowhere near a sure bet. In a decision delivered in a Delaware courtroom, Judge Kevin Gross granted a request by the casino's owners, Trump Entertainment Resorts, to end the contract, cutting health and pension benefits.

ATLANTIC CITY - When Atlantic City rolled out its "Always Turned On" tourism slogan in 2003, critics felt it was a little, well, risque. Nine years later, they've fixed that. The new slogan? "Do AC!" It's part of a $30 million casino-funded campaign to promote the nation's second-largest gambling resort through a group called the Atlantic City Alliance. The slogan, written by an agency the alliance hired, tested well, according to Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority president Jeff Vasser.
