Las Vegas-based Business Bank of Nevada said it has recovered $800,000 of the $2.2 million diverted from automated teller machines it had supplied with cash.

Al Alvarez, president and chief executive officer of the $120 million- asset bank, said the bank expects to recover the bulk of the money this year.

The funds are being repaid by Errol Vestuto, who owned the ATMs. In a December lawsuit Business Bank said Mr. Vestuto kept the money instead of putting it in the ATMs.

Bank officials said the lawsuit has been put on hold.
