Judge OKs auction for closed Revel Casino

A bankruptcy court judge says she will approve an auction Sept. 24 for the closed $2.4 billion Revel Casino Hotel.

Judge Gloria M. Burns said Monday she will approve the auction after a $90 million cash bid from a Florida developer was made public last week.

An attorney for Glenn Straub says that parts of the building could reopen a couple of weeks after the sale. Burns also approved a $3 million breakup fee that Straub would be paid if the sale to him doesn't go through.

Straub told reporters that a casino will likely operate in the building at some point. His bid doesn't include a requirement that his company be licensed to run a casino.

Revel attorney John Cunningham says no other qualified bids had been received as of Monday morning.
