Elad May Need a New Name for "The Plaza"

In a court ruling that makes a surprising amount of common sense, the Tamares Las Vegas Properties LLC, owners of the downtown Plaza Hotel & Casino, got a judge today to send their copyright infringement case to District Court for consideration. It'll be interesting to see how the Elad folks, who own the Plaza Hotel in New York and want to call their property in Vegas by the same name, defend the notion that they ought to also be allowed to call their hotel-casino in Vegas by that name. It's hard to imagine a more clear-cut case. Do they really think that a reasonable defense could be that their place will be beautiful (and the renderings make that questionable) and the current Plaza is a toilet?

To be continued...

As the earlier poster said, they need some guidance and advice from Mr. Wynn. In honor of his help they should call it "NNYW". It could pronounce ny, and the reflection of the signage off of the Wynn glass would provide comfort and inspiration to all.
