Glendale to petition high court over casino plan

The Glendale City Council will petition the Arizona Supreme Court to hear its appeal against a tribe that wants to build a casino near the city’s sports and entertainment district.

City Attorney Craig Tindall says it’s hard to estimate how much money and time it would cost Glendale to appeal the latest ruling because it depends whether the court hears the case.

As of last month, Glendale officials reported the city had spent $1.3 million battling the Tohono O’odham Nation over the planned casino.

The tribe seeks to create a reservation and open a casino on 54 acres in Glendale based on a federal land settlement.

The Arizona Republic says the Glendale City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday night to petition the state Supreme Court to hear its appeal.
