Hearing to halt Hard Rock construction set


A judge has set an October 10 hearing over a motion filed by the company which owns Sioux City's Argosy Casino to halt development of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Penn National Gaming spokesperson, KarenBailey, says the "motion to stay" follows the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's vote not to renew the Argosy Casino's gaming license.

Bailey said the move was "illegal."

Penn National wants a judge to halt any further development of the Hard Rock until a hearing can be held about the Argosy's gaming license.
