Trump Casino Company Doesn’t Have to Pay Bondholders


According to a report from the Associated Press, a bankruptcy court judge said that bondholders who pushed Donald Trump’s former casino company into bankruptcy court should not have their fees paid by the company.

On the negative side, however, the report went on to add that an independent auditor cautioned that because of the bankruptcy and other competitive disadvantages, there is a substantial doubt about whether Trump Entertainment Resorts, which owns three Atlantic City casinos, can survive.

The company filed for bankruptcy protection this past month after it failed to reach a deal with bondholders on restructuring $1.3 billion in debt. The bankruptcy filing was the company’s third.
