Developer Seeks Injunction Against Arizona Tribe

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- A federal judge is considering a Las Vegas developer's request to keep an Arizona tribe from cutting him out of managing the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The Hualapai Tribe declared eminent domain over the Skywalk contract earlier this month and says it will compensate David Jin for his investment.

Jin's attorneys argued before U.S. District Judge David Campbell on Friday that the tribe's action is a gross abuse of legislative and administrative power.

Campbell did not immediately rule on Jin's request for a temporary restraining order against tribal members.

The tribe contends that the proper venue to litigate is tribal, not federal court.

Both sides have accused the other of failing to abide by the contract for the Skywalk.

The glass bridge extends 70 feet from the Grand Canyon on the reservation.
