Last week a federal judge agreed with a 2010 decision that was made by the Department of Interior. That decision allows for the land owned by the Tohono O'odham outside of Glendale, part of the tribe's reservation.

The Tohono O'odham plan to begin working on the new casino as soon as the land is officially transferred. American Indian Law and gaming experts question if it will be something that can be done that quickly.

The tribe believes they meet the required criteria to open a casino. Therefore a secondary ruling by the federal government is not necessary.

Opposition from the ruling is coming from the Gila River Indian Community. A law suit was filed by them last month, asking for a federal judge to stop any gaming plans that are made for the newly acquired land.

Litigation is currently ongoing. No comment would be made regarding future actions.
