The Mob Attraction in the Tropicana has won title to most of the collection of Mafia-related artifacts after a court fight with the former owner.
Clark County District Judge Joanna Kishner, in a ruling Tuesday, said that the current Mob Attraction owners, who provided the financing to bring it out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy early this year, were entitled to foreclose on a list of more than 1,000 items that had been posted as collateral for loans. One list of items, including artifacts and things such as office equipment, is still under review.
The Mob Attraction’s collection, including items on display and warehoused, covers close to 1,500 items, spokesman Spence Johnston said. The items have remained at the site, although developer and previous owner Jay Bloom had claimed ownership.
The report of a special master in another case concerning Bloom showed the books and records had been “poorly and sloppily kept.” The Mob Attraction opened in early 2011 as the Mob Experience.
