Lawsuit for Trump Taj Mahal Casino Signs Goes to Federal Court

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

An Atlantic City firm says it planned to destroy two Trump signs once affixed to the now-closed Trump Taj Mahal Casino before an artifacts dealer got its hands on them to try to sell.

The Courier-Post reports that the lawsuit Trump Taj Mahal Associates filed against Recycling of Urban Materials for Profit, also known as RUMP, was moved to federal court in Camden this week.

RUMP claims in its own lawsuit that the firm abandoned ownership of the signs "by contracting for the disposal of the letters once they were removed."

The dealer posted one set of letters on eBay and received bids as high as $7,500 until the listing was pulled.
