State high court rejects Glendale annexation attempt

The Arizona Supreme Court has decided not to hear a petition from the City of Glendale on an appeal of an Arizona Court of Appeals decision that Tohono O’odham Nation land is outside Glendale boundaries. The Arizona Supreme Court further ruled Glendale must pay the tribe’s attorney fees.

Glendale opposes the tribe’s quest to take land it owns near 95th and Northern avenues into the reservation system to build a hotel and casino that the tribe believes will have a $300 million impact.

With the latest ruling, Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Ned Norris Jr. says it’s time for Glendale leaders to come to the table and resolve differences and move forward together to create an opportunity for the West Valley.
