A new party enters into the legal battle against the IRGC

Posted:

DES MOINES (KTIV) - First the City of Sioux City entered the Penn vs Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission lawsuit stating they had a vested interest in the proceedings and now a new party wants in.

Ho-Chunk Inc's Warrior Entertainment has filed a petition to join the legal battle saying they invested a large amount of money in the licensing process and are not properly represented in the lawsuit.

Ho-Chunk's Warrior project was one of four proposals vying for the gaming license along with two from Penn National Gaming and one from Sioux City Entertainment.

SCE's Hard Rock won the license.

The Ho-Chunk petition to enter the lawsuit claims the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission conducted an inappropriate application process and ultimately chose an inferior application.

Warrior Entertainment says because of the process and the amount invested they are an interested party in the lawsuit.

Ho-Chunk CEO Lance Morgan said, "Our only goal is to have a seat at the table; We spent a lot of money on this project."
