Revel owner balks at getting casino license
(AP) -- The new owner of the former Revel casino in Atlantic City says he won't begin reopening the property while New Jersey gambling regulators insist that he get a casino license.
Glenn Straub tells The Associated Press he should not have to go through the same costly, time-consuming licensing that other casino owners do because he is acting simply as a landlord to an outside company that would run the casino.
David Rebuck, director of the state Division of Gaming Enforcement, says the state will consider allowing Straub to obtain a lower-level license, but emphasized that he needs some level of license before the casino can reopen.
Straub says he plans to appeal the matter to the state Casino Control Commission.
