Taj formally requests approval to shut down

Billionaire Carl Icahn's management team is asking state gambling regulators for permission to shut down the Trump Taj Mahal casino hotel next month,  The team has filed a formal petition with the Division of Gaming Enforcement also seeking approval of plans to wind down table games, disconnect slot machines, store unused liquor, and destroy cards, dice, and gambling chips.  The billionaire says the Taj Mahal is losing millions of dollars a month while the city's main casino workers' union carries out a strike against it.
