Trump Taj Mahal Sued Over Their Signs

The owner of the defunct Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City is being sued by a Philadelphia-based group over the casino's signs, which are reported to be worth more than $100,000 for the placard.

Philadelphia group Recycling of Urban Materials for Profit brought suit against Trump Taj Mahal owner Carl Icahn last week over the ownership of a sign that the casino disposed of. The recycling group bought two Trump Taj Mahal signs from Eastern Sign Tech for $250 earlier this month. The group later put the signs on eBay and the auction hit more than $7,500 before it was abruptly canceled by eBay.

Upon investigation, Recycling of Urban Materials for Profit found that Eastern Sign had objected to the sale, noting that they were sold without permission. Corroborating this was a security guard at the casino, who said that REUMP stole the signs.

In their lawsuit, the recycling company claims that they have a purchase order for the signs from Eastern Sign Tech, and the security guard even wished them well, telling them that they secured a bargain.

The lawsuit is seeking the full ownership of the signs so that they can continue with the sale.

I am not surprised about this at all- where there are casinos- there are always lawsuits. In this case I feel like they saw an opportunity to gain some money from this case and so they pursueded it.

Strange story really,my guess is that this casino guard just get jealous when he saw at what amount the signs going be sold after the recycling company bout them for just 250$, it's real bargain and I guess they would make a few more bucks after winning that case.

Ah, I guess that the Atlantic was closed and somebody in the guard hastily sold the signs to get some money out of the defunct business. And I guess that it is the main signs on the photo of this article.
The sign looks great for a drinking bar.
