The company, which operates the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino (pictured) in Atlantic City, joins a growing list of New Jersey casino operators who have filed for bankruptcy.
An estimated 8,300 people are losing their jobs in Atlantic City following three casino closures in less than a month, Reuters reported.
Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino joins Revel and the Caesers Entertainment-operated Showboat in closing when it shuts its doors on Sept. 16. The Trump Taj Mahal is set to close on or shortly after Nov. 13, if the company fails to negotiate a deal with its largest union and reduce its expenses.
Trump Entertainment filed its bankruptcy petition in a Delaware court. It previously filed for bankruptcy in 2009, but reemerged the following year.
