At last night's opening for the new Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, buyers who purchased condos in the building showed up to protest outside the hotel, holding signs that asked for their deposits back, reports the Las Vegas Review Journal. (The Cosmopolitan canceled its condo plans and is now embroiled in a legal mess with 200 prospective owners.) "Lori Valencia, who carried a sign asking "Where is my Deposit?," said it's been five and a half years since she put down $140,000 to move into a condominium at The Cosmopolitan." Another sign said: "Why would you Gamble here? They Cheat!" [LVRJ]
