A U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on Tuesday will allow the Tohono O’odham Nation to take 54 acres into trust near Glendale’s sports and entertainment district.

The tribe has been battling with Glendale and others since announcing in 2009 that it planned to open a resort and casino near 95th and Northern avenues. The tribe had purchased the property, which is an unincorporated Maricopa County island, several years earlier.

The ruling comes nearly five months after attorneys for the city and the tribe argued over whether the federal court could create an Indian reservation near Glendale.
