DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Iowa's labor commissioner is asking that the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case of Agriprocessors to be moved from New York to Iowa.

Labor Commissioner David Neil filed an affidavit Monday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District of New York.

In it he argues that Agriprocessors Inc. potentially owes Iowa more than $10 million in civil penalties and back wages to workers.

One of Agriprocessors creditors has also asked for the case to be moved to Iowa, and government lawyers supported that motion in a memorandum.
