DOVER, Delaware — Attorneys have postponed a Delaware bankruptcy court hearing over Donald Trump's fight to remove his name from a struggling New Jersey casino.

Trump is suing Trump Entertainment Resorts in New Jersey state court, demanding that the Trump name come off the Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City. The lawsuit claims the company allowed the Taj and the Trump Plaza, which closed last month, to fall into disrepair, damaging the Trump brand.

The lawsuit was automatically put on hold when Trump Entertainment, which is trying to keep the Taj open, sought bankruptcy protection last month. The company is fighting Trump's request, saying it can't afford the expense or distraction of the state lawsuit as it tries to save the Taj Mahal.

A scheduled Thursday hearing was postponed Wednesday until Nov. 24.
