Tohono O'odham sues Glendale over casino opposition
July 30, 2009
GLENDALE, AZ - The Tohono O'odham Indian Nation filed a lawsuit this week
against the city of Glendale seeking to nullify the city's claim of annexation
and jurisdiction over land where the tribe intends to build a casino. The
proposed location is at Northern and 91st avenues.
In June Glendale attorneys claimed the city had annexed part of the casino site
in 2001, but did not realize it. Glendale never collected city property taxes on
the land, and the tribe says their records searches at the time they bought the
parcel showed it as unincorporated county land.
"The nation is determined to not let Glendale's groundless tactics prevent us
from moving forward with creating thousands of new jobs and $300 million in
annual economic impacts that will help stimulate the regional economy,"
said tribal Chairman Ned Norris Jr.
