Sioux City is intervening in litigation over the future of a gaming license in Woodbury County.
Attorneys for the city filed motions Friday in Polk County District Court asking to present evidence in a lawsuit against the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission.
Attorneys say the city's interests are not adequately represented by other parties in the case. The city has warned that pulling a gaming license for the proposed Hard Rock casino would put millions of local dollars at risk.
The Iowa Supreme Court is examining whether the district court had the power in December to stay the license awarded by the commission. Construction continues on the new casino.
Owners of the Argosy riverboat casino are challenging the commission's bidding process for the license.
