West Valley Casino Approved in Ruling By Judge

June 25, 2013

U.S District Judge David Campbell ruled in favor of the Tohono O'odham Nation and their proposed casino. The ruling came on Tuesday, stating that the current state compact does not stop the development of a casino in the Phoenix area.

Since 2009 the proposed West Valley casino has struggled with controversy and legal battles.

In 2011 a lawsuit was filed against the Tohono O'odham by two other tribes and the state. The lawsuit was based on the gaming compact that the voters approved. The proposed casino would violate the compact. That the compact was intended to stop the amount of casinos that would be allowed to be developed in the valley.

However, the judge stated that the wording in the compact does not clearly ban additional casinos.

The proposed casino will be located on land that was previously purchased by the Tohono O'odham Nation close to Glendale.

An appeal of the ruling is being considered by one of the suing tribes.
