A Nevada judge scuttled a plan to build on the historic site of the first racially integrated casino in Las Vegas, citing infighting in the would-be development firm and a better offer from another buyer.
Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez's ruling on Tuesday came seven weeks after a groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Moulin Rouge property in the West Las Vegas neighborhood.
The 5-acre site Moulin Rouge site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
