Hard Rock opts out of tribal deal to focus on LV project

The Hard Rock hotel and casino has severed ties with a California Indian tribe in order to focus its energies on building its $1 billion-plus condominium project and casino expansion in Las Vegas.

Hard Rock President Kevin Kelley said the property has decided to scrap the deal "in fairness to this property and in fairness to the Pauma tribe, who really wants to advance their gaming growth."

"We have a very big project we're doing here that is moving at light speed and it really needed to have our complete and undivided attention," Kelley said.
