DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Lawyers for the operator of the former Argosy Sioux City riverboat casino have asked the Iowa Supreme Court to consider their lawsuit against state regulators and other parties.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1YEELQI ) that the Belle of Sioux City last week filed its request for the high court to review the Iowa Appeals Court ruling that upheld lower court decisions that led to the casino’s closure.

The Appeals Court concluded the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission acted properly in 2013 when it decided to grant a gambling license to the land-based Hard Rock casino and reject an application by the Argosy’s owners. It was owned by the Belle of Sioux City, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming Co.
