The Casino Control Commission today voted to consider MGM’s request to retain its 50 percent ownership in the Borgata Hotel and will restart the licensing process for the casino operator.
The decision by the commission comes three years after MGM agreed to sell its stake in the Borgata when questions were raised about its partnership in a Macau casino with a woman whose father was alleged to have ties to organized crime.
According to casino officials, the woman’s role is greatly diminished and her father is seriously ill.
MGM must now file paperwork to regain its license. The March 24 deadline to sell its stake is on hold.
