Westgate Wins In Arbitration Against Graceland West Exhibits
Following months of testimony, a court appointed arbitrator recently ruled in favor of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, in a dispute over the closing of the Graceland West Exhibit and Graceland Chapel in 2016. Per the ruling, “the total amount owed to Westgate (Claimant) by Company (Respondent) considering principles of both law and equity to be $2,247,208.33.”
“While we are very satisfied with the final ruling against the entity owned by Joel Weinshanker that leased the exhibition space from our resort, we are also saddened by the fact that the legacy of Elvis Presley was tarnished by the leasee’s untimely and unnecessary closing of this exhibit,” said Mark Waltrip, Chief Operating Officer of Westgate Resorts. “Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino was the Las Vegas home to Elvis Presley for many years, and we will continue to explore other opportunities to honor this musical legend.”
