Trump Sued for More Than He's Worth

1/29/2008 10:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump is being sued for $4 billion. No big whoop, unless you're only worth around $2 billion.
Read the lawsuit
Nights at Vegas., Inc. is suing Trump, alleging he jock-blocked them in connection with the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas. Nights at Vegas is a licensed real estate property management company that leased out a number of the 1,200 condos in Trump complex.

When Nights at Vegas leases a unit, it takes 20% of the rental income from the condo owner. The Donald has a management company that gets 50% of the income when it leases out the condos. Sounds like Nights has the edge. But there's a rub.

According to the lawsuit, Trump has effectively made it impossible for Nights at Vegas to do business by prohibiting them from using the name "Trump" in any of its advertising or marketing.

Nights at Vegas claims Trump is violating the anti-trust laws, among other things. The suit seeks a cool $1 bil in compensatory damages and $3 bil in punitive.

No comment from Trumps peeps.

HE'S A GREEDY,STINKING COLD CREEP.

I'VE HATED HIM EVER SINCE HE UNNECESSARILY HUMILIATED HIS FIRST WIFE,IVANA, AT THAT SKI SLOPE WITH MARLA MAPLES, THE SLIME-QUEEN.

THEY ARE LITTLE GREEDY JERKS IS WHY, THEY WENT TO HIS "SIDE" , WHY NOT STAND UP FOR THEIR MOTHER ?
BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST LIKE THE CREEP A"** DAD.

GREED MAKES ME SICK.....DEVELOPERS ME ME SICK.......THEY ONLY WANT MONEY AND TO HELL WITH
ANYTHING ELSE, LIKE HISTORICAL PRESERVATION OR NATURE PRESERVATION. ......

PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS TRUE. PLEASE TELL ME THIS S.O.B. STANDS TO LOSE IT ALL! I HAVE DISLIKED HIM SINCE HE WENT OFF ON ROSIE - EVEN THOUGH I CAN'T STAND HER, EITHER - HE WAS AND IS A BULLY! HE HAS HURT A LOT OF PEOPLE ALONG THE WAY JUST TO MAKE HIS MILLIONS. HE STANDS TO BE JUDGED ON HIS MERIT - HE HAS NONE! HE STARTED WITH HIS FATHER'S MONEY AND YES - BY BEING A BULLY. KICK HIS BUTT OUT THE DOOR TO THE CURB. POOR KIDS, DON JR. AND IVANKA WILL NOW HAVE TO REALLY GET JOBS AND WORK. HE HAS MADE A FOOL OF HIMSELF - SAME AS DR. PHIL AND THEY BOTH DESERVE TO BE OUT OF JOBS. DONALD IS ALWAYS SAYING HOW GOOD HE IS - HOW SMART HE IS - WELLLLL - I'LL BET HIS LAWYERS DON'T DO MUCH - HE CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY THEM - AND BIG SHOTS DON'T WORK PRO BONO. GOOD WHILE IT LASTED, WASN'T IT?

I can only hope that Nights at Vegas whoops his sorry, unethical ass all the way down the strip and back again. Everything little Donny boy touches reeks of all that sucks in America.

IN 1978-79, DONALD TRUMP WAS IN DEBT TO CITIBANK, BANKRUPTCY WAS FILED, (NOT ON HIS BEHALF ), HOWEVER RESOLVED THROUGH NEW INVESTMENTS THAT DID RESULT IN HIS REPAYING ALL DEBT TO CITIBANK, AND OTHER DEBTORS, HE IS VERY SENSITIVE ABOUT THIS, TO WHICH, HE DID PREVAIL. ANY REFERENCE TO THIS IS UNFOUNDED AND WILL BE REPUTED BY ALL MEANS NECESSARY.
