ALTOONA, Iowa (AP) - Lawyers for the owners of a riverboat casino in Sioux City have scrutinized the wording of documents by officials who later denied renewing their gaming license.

Lawyers for Penn National Gaming made the arguments Thursday during a two-day hearing that took place before the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission and Administrative Law Judge Christie Scase.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1dA9KJ0 ) Penn is challenging the commission’s decision to reject a one-year license renewal for the Argosy riverboat casino. The commission says it had issue with the Argosy’s dissolving partnership with a nonprofit group.

Penn has also criticized the bidding process for a license that later went to another developer for a Hard Rock casino in downtown Sioux City.

The commission will make a ruling on the renewal issue in April.
