SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The former operator of the Argosy riverboat casino in Sioux City has filed another appeal to the Iowa Supreme Court.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1uoAboW ) that the former Argosy operator, Belle of Sioux City, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming Co., is appealing a Nov. 7 ruling by Judge Eliza Ovrom. She ruled that the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission acted within its authority in granting a license for what has become the land-based Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City. Argosy says Ovrom should not have ruled that Argosy failed to prove that the commission erred or abused its powers.
Argosy attorneys also filed a motion to combine the case with another appeal before the court. That appeal challenges the judge's order to shut down the Argosy.
