Casino backers get another court win in fight for Glendale facility

To quote:

"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 $3+million.

Fare thee well! (with a little pocket coin)
I thought I remember hearing that the new COG was more willing to talk to the Tonoho tribe about stopping the litigation and allowing the casino to move forward. It was mostly because the city continued to lose hearings and the litigiation was costing the city more and more money that they didn't have. If true, I wonder if they may start the negotiations now. I could be wrong about remembering this, however.
