The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a union's appeal of a lower court's ruling that allowed Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal casino, founded by Donald Trump but now owned by billionaire investor Carl Icahn, to break its contract with union workers to secure a bankruptcy rescue deal.
The high court's decision not to hear the appeal by Unite Here Local 54 leaves in place a January decision by the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that cleared the way for the casino to exit Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The struggling casino has since emerged from bankruptcy and is now owned by Icahn Enterprises. It was the New Jersey city's largest casino when Trump opened it in 1990 but it later fell on hard times along with other Atlantic City casinos.
