Hualapai Tribe disputes $28M award in Grand Canyon Skywalk





The Hualapai Tribe is disputing a $28 million arbitration award to the non-Indian developer of the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The tribe seized the business from David Jin, claiming he failed to live up to his end of the deal. But he says the American Arbitration Association has awarded him $28.5 million.

The tribe refused to appear before an arbitration hearing, the Associated Press reported. The tribe is also claiming sovereign immunity.

Turtle Talk has posted documents from the case, In the Matter of the Arbitration of Grand Canyon Skywalk Development, LLC and 'Sa' Nyu Wa, Inc.
