"Deutsch Bank and their partners in this venture have been caught red-handed, capitalizing on the recession to steal nearly $100 million in escrow deposits from individuals who bought into the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas," said Dan Park, lead counsel for the Plaintiffs in a statement. "It's no secret that they have no intention of building the condominiums, as promised, and are playing with people's livelihoods instead of returning money that rightfully belongs to them."
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is set to open in December. The project has not recorded a subdivision map with Clark County showing any condominium units. he $3.9 billion project will include nearly 3,000 rooms, a casino, spa, nightclub and retail space. The Casino City Times reports that the plaintiffs in the newest lawsuit paid 20 percent deposits on units and have not agreed to the times of other settlements. Deutsche Bank bought the project for $1 billion when it was half-finished after its original developer and owner entered foreclosure proceedings.
