WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -- A judge did not issue a ruling Wednesday in a dispute between an Atlantic City casino union and the Trump Taj Mahal, whose patrons the union tried to convince to go elsewhere.

Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross in Delaware heard arguments by Trump Entertainment Resorts to force Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union to acknowledge that letters it sent Taj Mahal customers, urging them to take their business elsewhere, were misleading.

The union says its communications are protected free speech, claiming a federal law that prohibits federal courts from barring publicity regarding a labor dispute.

The campaign began shortly before the judge granted Trump Entertainment's request in October to cancel the union contract at the Taj Mahal and impose the company's terms.

No word on when a decision will come.
