Hopi Tribe wins round in Snowbowl lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - The Hopi Tribe has won a round in its bid to stop Flagstaff from selling reclaimed wastewater to Arizona Snowbowl.

On Thursday, the Arizona Court of Appeals overturned a 2011 ruling by a former Coconino County Superior Court judge.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that clears the way for the tribe to challenge the city's water contract with Snowbowl.

The appeals court ruled the tribe was early in filing a lawsuit ahead of December 2012 snowmaking, that the case wasn't a delay tactic and it did raise new questions.

The Hopi are suing under an assertion that Flagstaff's decision to sell reclaimed wastewater to the Snowbowl ski resort causes a public nuisance. The tribe says that interferes with much of the public's ability to enjoy life or property.

    A dance party for kids and tweens looks like a rave or perhaps a wild night at the club. But actually, many of the people at this party probably just learned how to tie their shoes. Twin brothers Tyler and Tristin recently had a FUZIPOP party in Manhattan to celebrate their 10th birthday. Never heard of a FUZIPOP party?

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the federal prosecutor investigating political payback allegations involving the Republican's administration are both set to speak at a prisoner re-entry conference on Thursday.
    Former NBA player Jayson Williams says trying to re-enter society after serving time for shooting a limousine driver was more difficult than being in prison.
