No sooner had we reported on this new wedding chapel, and it closes again...
The Elvis Presley estate has filed a lawsuit against Westgate Las Vegas casino-hotel that is holding artifacts and memorabilia involving the King as part of a leasing dispute.
Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. filed the lawsuit in Clark County District Court to retrieve stage outfits, jewelry, letters and a high school yearbook, among other artifacts from the career, home and wedding of Elvis Presley.
Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. is trying to get back hundreds of items it loaned to the much-hyped "Graceland Presents Elvis" attraction at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.
The off-Strip property took control of the items last month when it shut down the attraction that includes a museum exhibit, wedding chapel and theater. The move came after the third-party operator, Exhibit A Circle, said it was quitting.
If you want an Elvis wedding in Las Vegas, luckily there's plenty of other options that don't involve lawsuits.
