DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Supreme Court has refused to pump new life into the lawsuit filed by owners of the former Argosy Sioux City riverboat casino against state regulators and other parties.

On Monday the Supreme Court denied the Belle of Sioux City’s request for the 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.
