Settlement reached in trial of flawed Vegas hotel
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Openings were cancelled Tuesday in a $ 500 million civil damages trial pitting casino giant MGM Resorts International against contractors at a by no means-opened Las Vegas Strip hotel tower.
A settlement was reached, Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez stated.
Terms of the agreement in between six of the seven parties in the case have been confidential.
Gonzalez dismissed a jury seated for a trial that was anticipated to take at least a year.
Operate on the City Center tower stopped about halfway in 2008, after inspectors identified steel used on the first 26 stories would not assistance the remaining 22 floors.
The rest of the glassy $ 8.five billion improvement opened in 2009. General contractor Tutor Perini Corp. argued MGM Mirage failed to spend bills.
MGM argued the contractor was accountable for constructing flaws.
