A STATEMENT FROM PENN SPOKESPERSON KAREN BAILEY SAYS:

“WE ARE BEYOND DISMAYED AT THE IRGC’S DECISION TODAY AND THEIR EGREGIOUS TRACK RECORD THROUGH THIS PROCESS.

THIS WILL COME AS A HUGE BLOW TO OUR EMPLOYEES AND THEIR FAMILIES –

AS A RESULT WE INTEND TO REQUEST A STAY OF TODAY’S DECISION AS WE CONTINUE TO PURSUE ANSWERS IN THE COURTS OVER THIS AND OTHER RELATED MATTERS BOTH WITH MRHD AND THE IRGC.
