Amid Leasing Row, Westgate's Elvis Exhibit Closes

An Elvis Presley exhibit that opened at a Las Vegas casino-hotel with great fanfare last year has abruptly closed amid a leasing dispute that involves hundreds of the King's artifacts.

The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino said it's holding the valuables from its Elvis attraction because the operators, Exhibit A Circle LLC, have defaulted on its 10-year contract with the off-Strip property.

Westgate said it spent millions outfitting the space and has threatened legal action to recoup money owed in the leasing agreement.

Exhibit A Circle had no immediate comment.

Meanwhile, Elvis Presley Enterprises said it will seek court intervention to get back the hundreds of Elvis memorabilia and artifacts it loaned to the attraction from the Presley family.
