The economic development division of a Native American tribe in Nebraska is seeking to intervene in the legal fight over a Sioux City casino.
Ho-Chunk Inc., the Winnebago Tribe's economic development arm, filed requests Friday to intervene in a lawsuit by owners of the Argosy riverboat casino in Sioux City. Argosy parent company, Penn National Gaming Co., is challenging the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's decision last year to award a casino license to the owners of the Hard Rock Casino, currently being built in downtown Sioux City.
The Hard Rock proposal beat out bids from Penn National and Ho-Chunk.
Ho-Chunk says if a court finds the commission's decision to back Hard Rock was flawed, it deserves "a seat at the table."
