LAS VEGAS (AP) - The man behind two revitalized downtown Las Vegas casinos now has a new asset in his portfolio - a vacant, 1960s courthouse around the corner.

Derek Stevens was the lone bidder Tuesday for the old Clark County hall of justice, and snagged the boxy building for $10 million.

Stevens co-owns the newly renovated and renamed D Las Vegas casino and the Golden Gate casino. He tells the Las Vegas Sun he plans to demolish the building, but didn't provide specifics about future development there.

The seven-story, 315,000-square-foot building was built in 1960 and has been empty since the Regional Justice Center was completed in 2005.

Union Pacific Railroad dedicated the property in 1905 for use as a court, jail, library and city hall.
