At a time whereby Atlantic City only seems to be generating negative news, "Hurley in the Morning" has confirmed that an important development is about to occur. This breaking news story is a particularly timely event in light of the recent news that the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel may close in the next two months.

"Hurley in the Morning" has learned and confirmed that MGM Resorts International will be on this Wednesday's (September 10, 2014) New Jersey Casino Control Commission Agenda.

Multiple well placed confidential sources have confirmed to "Hurley in the Morning" that MGM will be re-licensed, and, that they intend to be "a cornerstone in Atlantic City for years to come."

The times have changed dramatically since the days where licensure for MGM looked nearly impossible in Atlantic City.

Our well placed sources have confirmed that the state asked MGM to resubmit for licensure, "under the cloak of changed circumstances."

This is significant and basically ensures that MGM will be re-licensed to do casino hotel business in New Jersey.

"Hurley in the Morning" has also confirmed that highly regarded Attorneys Nick Menas (Partner, Fox Rothchild Attorneys at Law) and Bill Layton of Commarano, Layton and Bombardieri Partners were the two driving forces responsible for resurrecting MGM Resorts fortunes in Atlantic City.

Both Menas and Layton are recipients of the highly coveted Top 100 Political Power People in New Jersey politics list.

Menas is a highly skilled real estate attorney, who has extensive experience representing commercial, industrial and residential developers, public utilities, telecommunications and casinos. Menas served on Governor Chris Christie's transition team, as part of the Transition Counsel, which provided legal support to the 19 subcommittees of the Governor's transition team.

Layton has also served as the former Executive Director of the New Jersey Concrete and Aggregate Association, a former Political Director for the New Jersey State Republican Committee and presently serves as the Chairman of the Burlington County Republican Committee.

"Hurley in the Morning" spoke separately with both Menas and Layton this past Saturday, September 6, 2014. Both Menas and Layton declined to comment, (both on, or, off the record) regarding this highly sensitive matter.

However, multiple Hurley in the Morning reliable sources have confirmed the accuracy of our breaking news report.
