Supreme Court rejects union challenge to Trump casino bankruptcy
The Supreme Court refused on Tuesday to hear a union’s challenge to a bankruptcy ruling that cut health and pension benefits for workers at the Atlantic City, N.J., casino founded and formerly owned by Donald Trump.
The Trump Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy in 2014 and was eventually taken over by billionaire Carl Icahn.
The Trump organization sought and won an order from a bankruptcy judge that ended the health insurance plan that had been negotiated with the casino workers’ union.
The union, Unite Here Local 54, asked the high court to review that decision, but the justices said in a brief order they would not hear the case of Unite Here vs. Trump Entertainment Resorts.
