LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Nevada state judge has withdrawn permission to demolish a flawed hotel tower on the Las Vegas Strip and postponed a trial to determine who's responsible for damages in the case.

MGM Resorts International agreed Friday to more testing on the 26-story Harmon Hotel.

As a result, Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez withdrew permission she granted last July to demolish the tower.

The hotel was intended to open in 2009 as part of the $8.5 billion CityCenter development.

The 46-story project was halted in 2008 at 26 floors after inspectors found flaws in steel reinforcements.

It is a joint project between MGM Resorts and Dubai World.

Gonzalez on Monday postponed until January 2014 the trial involving MGM Resorts and Perini Building Co. over $500 million in damage claims.
