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.
