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.

TRUMP IS A SLEAZY GUY AND DESERVES TO LOSE. I DOUBT HE WILL THOUGH... PROBABLY JUST A SETTLEMENT OUT OF COURT. I HAVE A UNIT AT TRUMP AND FEEL BAMBOOZLED MYSELF... HE INFLATED PRICES MAKING EVERYONE THINK THERE WAS GREAT VALUE - THEN CAME OUT WITH A CRAP SPLIT - 50% / 50% AND NOW WONT LET PEOPLE BACK OUT WITHOUT KEEPING THEIR $200,000 DEPOSITS.

With this guy's abrasiveness and generally condescending, arrogant ways, he's been begging for this for a lot of years. Go right for the jugular, vultures, and by that I mean wallet. YYYYYYEEEEAAAAHHHHHHH!!

50% of the income to lease the units? The mob doesn't charge rates like that. What a friggin rip off artist. It is obscene!
i guess it serves you right if you want to buy a condo in that gaudy gold tower. Donald Trump has by far the worst taste in buildings, decorating and casino management in the entire industy. Only a fool would buy into his hype.

One is a flaming nazi gasbag, the other is just a blimp.

The Donald didn't get to where he is by not having an Ace (or two!) up his sleeve. Let them sue--see what they end up with ;)
Even if they prevail 9they won't) do you REALLY think The Donald is without reserves that even the IRS wouldn't know about?
Bottom Line: Don't Bet Against Donald--he's got steel balls and I think he's freekin' GRREAT!!!

YOU GO DONALD! Kick some more A**!
