MGM MIRAGE says a lawsuit filed by its partner in a $8.6 billion casino construction project is "completely without merit."
The Las Vegas-based casino operator issued its first statement on the lawsuit Tuesday morning, a day after a subsidiary of Dubai World filed the suit in Delaware Chancery Court.

Infinity World claims that MGM MIRAGE's statements about its financial condition have put the massive CityCenter resort project at risk.
MGM MIRAGE is struggling with more than $13 billion in debt. But the company says it has cash available to meet its financial obligations.
Dubai World owns a 50 percent stake in the CityCenter casino, hotel, retail and residential development on the Las Vegas Strip, and controls about 9.5 percent of MGM MIRAGE shares.
