DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A trial date has been set next year for the lawsuit filed by the owner of the former Argosy Sioux City riverboat casino against its local partner.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2jyUGkU ) that Penn National Gaming’s breach of contract action against Missouri River Historical Development is set to go to trial Feb. 12, 2018, in Des Moines.

The development group was the state-licensed nonprofit group that held the Argosy’s gambling license. The lawsuit says the development group schemed to replace the Argosy with another operator even before their contract expired in July 2012.

The Argosy closed in July 2014 after Iowa regulators denied its license renewal. The development group had formed a partnership with developers who opened the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in downtown Sioux City.
