Penn National files emergency motion to attempt to keep Argosy open past July 1


Penn National Gaming isn't done with efforts in Polk County Court to keep the Argosy Casino open on Sioux City's riverfront.

Penn National, the parent company of the Argosy's owner, Belle of Sioux City, filed an emergency motion in Polk County District Court after they were denied Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Pennsylvania court Wednesday.

They've asked for a stay of the decision back in April by the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to close the Argosy on July 1.

Penn National says that IRGC decision was based on quote "wholly irrational reasoning."

There are no court hearings scheduled for the filing.

The IRGC will discuss the motion at a special meeting in Altoona, Iowa on June 25.
