A federal judge is questioning some actions by the state’s gaming director in his bid to block full-scale casino gambling near Glendale.

In a written ruling, U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell said Daniel Bergin was working through his attorney with a lawyer for the Gila River Indian Community.

That tribe is not a party to the current lawsuit in front of Campbell, which deals only with whether Begin has the right to deny the certification for Class III gaming to the Tohono O’odham Nation. And what that Gila tribe has, the judge noted, is a financial interest in limiting the kind of gambling that the Tohono O’odham can conduct at the casino, which opened with limited gaming late last year.
