WASHINGTON (AP) – The Supreme Court won’t hear an appeal from a Nevada developer over the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
The high court on Monday declined to hear an appeal from lawyers for the late Las Vegas businessman David Jin. Jin invested $30 million to build the bridge that opened in 2007. He and the tribe have disagreed on management fees and an incomplete visitors’ center.
His lawyers say the Hualapai (WAHL’-uh-peye) tribal court system lacks authority to hear the case. But tribal attorneys say the operation of the popular glass bridge in northern Arizona is governed by Hualapai law.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco sided with the tribe, and justices decided not to review that decision.
