ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) — Donald Trump no longer wants to be associated with two casinos in Atlantic City that bear his name.

Trump has filed suit in New Jersey Superior Court to end a licensing agreement that puts his name on the Plaza and Taj Mahal hotel-casinos.

A statement from the Trump organization says the casinos are not meeting quality standards set forth in that licensing agreement, which Trump wants terminated.   The statement suggests that he hasn’t been in Atlantic City in years, and has nothing to do with the casinos.

The Plaza is set to close next month.
