BATON ROUGE - Roughly three dozen companies have filed millions of dollars in liens against a Baton Rouge casino that opened in September.

The Advocate reports that the liens are on record in the East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court's Office. They involve disputes between Pinnacle Entertainment Inc. and its contractors. Pinnacle is the parent company of the L'Auberge Casino & Hotel Baton Rouge.

Companies that have filed liens include general contractor Manhattan Construction Co.

Four companies have sued Pinnacle, Manhattan or both in 19th Judicial District Court over the past three months.

Wilhite Electric Co. Inc., of Bossier City, is the latest firm to sue both. Wilhite is seeking $8.5 million, saying in its lawsuit that it has done $27.6 million worth of work and been paid $19.1 million.
