PHOENIX -- A southern Arizona tribe is asking a federal court to order the state to pay $4.2 million for the tribe's attorney's fees and legal expenses in a legal fight over the tribe's plan to build a casino next to the Phoenix suburb of Glendale.

The Tohono O'odham Nation's lawyers submitted the request two weeks after a U.S. District Judge issued a final ruling in the case.

District Judge David Campbell ruled that Arizona's compact governing Indian gaming doesn't ban more tribal casinos from opening in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

The Tohono O'odham Nation purchased the site after receiving a $30 million federal settlement to replace reservation land damaged by a dam.
