Losing Revel Bidder Asks for Second Chance

Glenn Straub says he wasn't prepared for the all-night bidding session.

The dream of a “university for geniuses” isn’t dead yet.

CBS Philly reports that Glenn Straub, the Florida developer who last week lost the bidding for the shuttered Revel Casino, is asking a court for a second chance at bidding.

Straub said he was at a disadvantage during the bidding last week.

Straub complained about the all-night bidding session, which he said placed him in jeopardy from an undisclosed medical condition for which he had not brought his medicine to New York from Florida.

He called it “a life-and-death situation.”

A judge is expected to rule Tuesday whether the sale to Brookfield Asset Management is final.
