Tribe asks for $4.2M for attorney’s fees in Glendale casino case

PHOENIX — A southern Arizona tribe is asking a federal court to order the
state to pay $4.2 million for the tribe’s attorney’s fees and legal expenses in
a legal fight over the tribe’s plan to build a casino next to the Phoenix suburb
of Glendale.

The Tohono O’odham Nation’s lawyers submitted the request
two weeks after a U.S. District Judge issued a final ruling in the case.

District Judge David Campbell ruled that Arizona’s compact governing Indian
gaming doesn’t ban more tribal casinos from opening in the Phoenix metropolitan

The Tohono O’odham Nation purchased the site after receiving a $30 million
federal settlement to replace reservation land damaged by a dam.
