Owner of former Revel casino sues New Jersey over licensing

The owner of Atlantic City's former Revel casino is suing New Jersey casino regulators, arguing that he doesn't need a casino license when his property reopens in the spring.



Glenn Straub says he is nothing more than a landlord renting space in the building to a casino operator, and that he should not have to obtain a costly casino license.



He is suing the state Casino Control Commission and asking a judge to order the commission to agree that Straub does not need a full-blown casino license.



The commission had no immediate comment.



Straub has hired a management team to run the property, which is being rebranded under the name Ten.



It plans a spring 2017 opening assuming the necessary licenses and approvals are obtained before then.
