Casino backers get another court win in fight for Glendale facility
"The Tohono O’odham Nation has won another round in court in its bid to build a $500 million casino in the West Valley north of Jobing.com Arena and University of Phoenix Stadium.
U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell ruled today in Phoenix against a lawsuit brought by the Gila River Indian Community and state of Arizona arguing the proposed casino violates the state’s 2002 voter-approve gaming compact with tribes."
Slightly off topic, but the casino battle has cost the CoG at least $5million*.
Fare thee well
! (with a little pocket coin)
"He [Acting City Manager Dick Bowers] said, “add it all up, it comes to just under $5 million. My question is, what would we gain by winning the lawsuit? A bunch of dirt. The gain? Thousands of jobs.”"
