Nevada High Court Hears Arguments on Vegas Hotel

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Supreme Court justices seeking common ground found more disagreement between lawyers arguing the fate of a flawed hotel at the CityCenter development on the Las Vegas Strip.

An attorney for property owner MGM Resorts International ended oral arguments Tuesday saying that even a consultant for general contractor Tutor Perini Corp. now says the Harmon Hotel tower can't be repaired.

But a lawyer for Perini says he doesn't agree.

There was no immediate ruling from the court.

The building wasn't completed when the CityCenter development opened in December 2009.

It was supposed to be 48 stories, but stopped at 26 after inspectors found flaws in reinforcing beams during construction.

MGM Resorts wants the structure torn down even before a jury hears a nearly $500 million construction defect lawsuit next January.
