Nevada's highest court has overturned the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by 47 hedge funds over a failed Las Vegas casino.
The hedge funds, led by Brigade Capital Management, were among the lenders who provided $2.5 billion in loans to the project, which would have built a new 63-story hotel and casino on Las Vegas' famed Strip.

A Nevada district court judge dismissed the 2011 lawsuit against Union Labor, a ruling that the state's Supreme Court said yesterday was in error.
