ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – 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 Trumps are suing Trump Entertainment Resorts in state court in New Jersey, seeking to have the Trump name stripped from the Taj Mahal. But a federal bankruptcy case has put a temporary halt to that litigation, and the Trumps want to let the lawsuit proceed.
The real estate mogul and his daughter claim that Trump Entertainment, with which they are no longer involved, let the now-closed Trump Plaza and the Taj Mahal deteriorate to the point where it damages their personal brand.
The company is refusing to drop the Trump name.
