Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The Greenbrier's new owner says he's tentatively settled his differences with Marriott International over his $20 million purchase of the West Virginia resort.
James Justice said Monday he's agreed to negotiate a marketing deal with Marriott.
If they can't work out a deal within 30 days, justice says he'll pay a $7.5 million breakup fee.
Marriott had agreed to buy the Greenbrier from Jacksonville, Fla.-based railroad CSX Corp.
That agreement was awaiting approval as part of the Greenbrier's bankruptcy case when Justice bought the resort for $20.1 million in May.
Separately, Justice says he's agreed on new contracts with the hotel's unions.
Justice is seeking to have the resort's bankruptcy case dismissed.
A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Richmond, VA.
