CBS, Developer Dispute Bodines Casino Name
The name of a casino under construction in Carson City is the focus of a dispute between the developer and CBS.
The network recently sent a letter to Mike Pegram asking him to not use the name "Bodines" in his casino.
Bodine was the last name of Jethro in the 1960's CBS hit the "Beverly Hillbillies." But Pegram, who is building the casino along with the Carano family, says they bought the name from Bodines Restaurant that used to sit on the south Carson Street property.
Pegram says he has no plans on changing it.
Max Baer Jr. (who played Jethro) is also building his own casino in northern Douglas County. He says anyone other than him using the Bodine name is doing it unfairly.
