Judge finds gaming director, GRIC relationship ‘troubling’ — Glendale Star
Since February 2009, the Tohono O’odham Nation has been involved in a battle over its right to operate a Class III casino on land it owns at 95th and Northern avenues.
In a ruling July 25, Federal District Court Judge David Campbell concluded that the Arizona Department of Gaming and the Gila River Indian Community colluded to stop the Nation from opening the casino in the West Valley.
ADG spokesperson Amanda Jacinto said Bergin was working on a legal strategy and the papers were never intended by Bergin to go beyond that. Still, Jacinto defended Bergin and the ADG, when it came to whatever information was contained in the documents handed over by Bergin.
