Hollywood Developers Vow Fast Track to Reopen Lady Luck Casino

The Hollywood-based developers who say they are taking over the downtown Las Vegas casino, Lady Luck, say they hope to reopen the shuttered property within two years.   

John Given of the CIM Group told the Las Vegas City Council Wednesday that his firm's priority was putting the casino on the, quote, "fastest track to turn the lights back on."   

The Lady Luck closed in February 2006.   

Given says his group would like the right to buy 5.5 acres of land that is now home to Frank Wright Plaza as part of a revival of the property.   

The council approved the selling of the land unanimously.
