SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Argus Leader Media is suing the city of Sioux Falls for not releasing details about a $1 million settlement over construction issues at the Denny Sanford Premier Center.

The lawsuit filed in state court alleges the city violated open record laws by refusing an Argus Leader Media (https://argusne.ws/1XNw2dE ) request for records surrounding faulty panels installed on the $117 million event center.

The city and five contractors involved in the event center’s construction settled the matter in September after months of negotiations not open to the public. The city released the amount of the settlement but no details such as individual contributions by the contractors.

City Attorney David Pfeifle (FYF’-lee) says the city believes it was within the law in agreeing to a confidential settlement.
