The Elvis estate is suing a Las Vegas casino to get back memorabilia on loan to an exhibit.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

The Elvis Presley estate is taking on a Las Vegas casino-hotel that is holding artifacts and memorabilia as part of a leasing dispute over an Elvis exhibit:

(Elvis) "Please release me, let me go."

Elvis Presley Enterprises Inc. filed the lawsuit Monday seeking to retrieve stage outfits, jewelry, letters and a high school yearbook, that were all on loan to an exhibit that was leasing out space in the hotel.

However, when the exhibitors wanted to get out of the lease, the casino shut down the exhibit and confiscated the artifacts. The lawsuit accused the casino of holding the valuables hostage for leverage in its leasing dispute.
