Artman quoted in ‘Arizona Republic’ article on Glendale’s disputed casino
Professor of Practice
, Director of the College of Law’s Economic Development in Indian Country Program, was quoted in a Feb. 3
article entitled, “Glendale casino foes race clock in land spat,” by reporter Cecilia Chan.
The article discusses a dispute over a piece of land on which the Tohono O’odham Nation has proposed building a casino. However, before breaking ground, the tribe must guarantee reservation status of the land. Glendale and the Gila River Community have vehemently opposed the casino project since it was proposed two years ago, and the dispute is currently being waged in court.
Artman argued that, because of the extensive appeals process, the land is unlikely to be awarded to either side any time soon.
“The appeals process will take from three months to 12 months, perhaps 18 if some of the issues are remanded or new events occur,” Artman said.
