The employees were left without a job when the casino filed for bankruptcy and closed in 2014 along with four other Atlantic City casinos.

Local 54 president Bob McDevitt said workers have waited too long to collect money that is rightfully theirs, calling the wait quote, "An indictment of the bankruptcy court system."
