Icahn to close Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City at summer's end | Reuters

Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal casino, owned by billionaire investor Carl Icahn, will close after Labor Day at the end of the summer, the company said on Wednesday.

Closure of the casino, which is in the midst of a labour strike by its unionized workers over wages and health insurance costs, would be another big blow to the struggling New Jersey coastal city. Four of its 12 casinos remain shut after closing in 2014, though one reopened as a hotel only.
