The owner of the Argosy Sioux City riverboat casino is now asking an Iowa judge to reverse a decision allowing a rival to build a nearby land-based casino.
Penn National Gaming Co. has asked a state judge to review actions taken by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission in its selection last month of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino planned for downtown Sioux City.
Penn National is asking the court to reverse or vacate the decision.
The legal filing mirrors a request Penn National filed earlier this month asking the commission to reconsider its April 18 vote to award a state license to the Hard Rock developer, Sioux City Entertainment.
Penn spokeswoman Karen Bailey says that request is still pending.
