PHOENIX - A federal judge says he'll rule soon in a lawsuit in which the two Indian tribes and the state are fighting a third tribe over its plan to build a casino on land just outside Glendale.
District Judge David Campbell concluded a hearing Tuesday by taking under advisement dueling motions for pretrial verdicts.
According to The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/16PRdBb ), Campbell could rule for one of the sides or decide to hold a full trial.
The state and the Gila River and Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian communities contend that the Tohono O'odham Nation's plans violate the state's gambling compact with tribes on grounds that further casinos aren't allowed in the Phoenix area.
The Tohono O'odham says its planned casino is allowed under a federal law allowing it to acquire more land.
