Donald Trump sues to get name off casinos in Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - Donald Trump is suing an Atlantic City, New Jersey, casino company, trying to force it to drop his name from its two gambling halls.

Trump told The Associated Press he wants his name stripped from the Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal because their owner, Trump Entertainment Resorts, has failed to maintain them properly.

Trump said in a lawsuit filed Tuesday the poor condition of the casinos is hurting his personal brand.

Trump Entertainment Resorts has declined to comment.

Trump doesn't run or control the entertainment resorts company but retains a 10 percent stake, which enables the company to use his name for licensing purposes.

Trump told the AP he hasn't considered whether to divest his remaining ownership stake.

Trump Plaza is due to close Sept. 16.
