Donald Trump will not be taking over the bankrupt casino and entertainment company that bears his name, but he and his daughter will retain a stake in the entity under the terms of a deal Trump struck with the bondholders who will take the company out of bankruptcy, according to court records.

Friedman says he has been representing Trump for about 10 years after a mutual friend introduced them.
