SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- A judge has ordered a member of the Missouri River Historical Development board, and a MRHD lawyer, to turn over documents subpoenaed in Penn National Gaming's breach of contract suit against the non-profit.
The documents relate to efforts by MRHD board member Dave Bernstein, and attorney Curtis Beason, to find a company to partner with MRHD in Woodbury County's new land-based casino.
MRHD had objected to Penn's subpoena claiming much of the information requested isn't relevant to the case, and what is relevant is protected by attorney-client privilege.
The judge disagreed, saying the documents are relevant. He also said attorney-client privilege isn't an issue because there's no proof that Beason was acting as an attorney in the documents requested.
In the lawsuit, Penn alleges that MRHD "secretly" began discussions with other operators to replace Penn a year before the expiration of an agreement, which identified Penn as the "exclusive licensee" to operate a gambling enterprise in Woodbury County.
