SIOUX CITY, Iowa — The Iowa Supreme Court has potentially given the Argosy riverboat casino in Sioux City more time to stay open.

The high court on Friday granted an emergency stay of a district court order requiring the casino to close July 22. Groups in support of the closure have until Monday to file a resistance.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1yDAot9 ) the stay will be in effect while the state Supreme Court considers whether to hear Argosy's appeal of the district court's order to close. It's unclear how much more time the stay gives the casino.

Karen Bailey, a spokeswoman for Argosy parent Penn National Gaming Co., says she's pleased.

In April, the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission ordered the riverboat casino to close because it doesn't meet state gaming license requirements.
