More Tahoe Hard Rock legal claims come out of the woodwork
August 3, 2016
STATELINE, Nev. — More legal woes for the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino appeared on the horizon this week, as another contractor has sought foreclosure due to an unpaid lien.
In its court filing, Belfor Environmental claims it's still due $331,400 for removing asbestos from the old Horizon.
In a legal notice appearing recently in The Record-Courier newspaper in Minden, Belfor notified anyone claiming a lien should file with Douglas County District Court.
According to Belfor, it was contracted to remove the asbestos from the former Horizon Hotel towers for $1.043 million, and was paid $712,015.
Meanwhile, a Jan. 25, 2017, court date has been set in a trial over the hotel towers' renovation.
That lawsuit involves the $7.98 million reconstruction of the hotel tower.

It has been more than a year since Reno firm SMC Construction filed a lien claiming the cost of building the casino doubled and they were owed $9.6 million.
Within a week of Paragon filing a deed of trust with the Douglas County Recorder's Office, 16 contractors released or assigned liens, including SMC and other plaintiffs Savage & Sons and Tahoe Specialty Flooring and Window Design.
The Horizon closed on April 1, 2014, for renovation, which the Parks said at the time would be aimed at younger visitors.
On July 17, 2014, Parks announced the Horizon would be a Hard Rock when it reopened.
It reopened on Jan. 28, 2015, after a flurry of activity to prepare the casino for the public. An SMC official testified that he was told the casino must be ready for the opening date at all costs.
