Gary Stein, the conservator appointed by the New Jersey Casino Control Commission to oversee the Tropicana Hotel Casino Atlantic City, announced that he has received "multiple expressions of interest" from parties who wish to buy the resort. He previously had set a deadline of March 17 for receiving such responses. Stein was appointed conservator in December 2007, when the Casino Control Commission refused to renew the Tropicana's license. Tropicana's owners have since filed an appeal to that decision.
