SHARE PANEL GAMBLES ON GRIFFIN

The New Jersey Casino Control Commission unanimously approved Merv Griffin's request for a permanent license to run the Resorts International Hotel Casino in Atlantic City but warned him to make sure he doesn't hire any executives with links to the mob. The commission had been concerned that Michael Nigris Jr., former chief executive of the Griffin Co., allegedly had associates tied to organized crime. Griffin later fired Nigris, who denies any mob connections.
