Generator trucks arrive at powerless Revel casino site

(AP) -- Three portable generator trucks have arrived at the site of Atlantic City's former Revel casino, which has been without utility service since Thursday.



Florida developer Glenn Straub says two main generator trucks and a backup unit arrived Tuesday and should be fully connected by Thursday.



He bought the shuttered casino a week ago, but the power plant that is its sole source of utility service cut it off two days later because the two parties could not agree on a contract for future service to the building.



That led the city to impose fines of $5,000 per day on Straub for not having operational fire prevention and suppression systems.



A lawsuit between Straub and ACR Energy Partners over the power standoff has been transferred to federal court.
