Court Keeps Stay Over Gaming License

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) The Iowa Supreme Court says an emergency stay will remain in place against orders to suspend a gaming license for a new Sioux City casino.

Justice Brent Appel granted a stay Dec. 19 that halted an earlier stay by Polk County District Court Judge Robert Hanson. An order signed Wednesday means the stay will remain in place, and construction on the casino can continue.

The Sioux City Journal reports Hanson's stay Dec. 10 suspended a gaming license for the Hard Rock-themed casino being developed by SCE Partners. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission issued it in April.

The commission is entangled in litigation with Penn National Gaming, which owns the Argosy riverboat casino. Penn wanted the gaming license suspended until a lawsuit against the commission could be resolved.
