A judge has granted a temporary reprieve to the Argosy riverboat casino in Sioux City by delaying its closing.
Polk County District Court Judge Eliza Ovrom ruled Thursday to keep the floating casino open at least through July 10. A hearing is scheduled on that date for final arguments in the Argosy's appeal of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission's decision to close it.
The Argosy was scheduled to close Tuesday. The commission recently refused to halt its order for the casino to close.
The Argosy's operator, Penn National Gaming Co., lost its bid last year to operate a land-based casino in Sioux City. A Hard Rock casino and hotel by another developer is scheduled to open later this summer.
