Hualapai Tribe ordered to disclose financial data from Skywalk

A federal bankruptcy judge has ordered the Hualapai Tribe of Arizona to disclose financial data from its popular Grand Canyon Skywalk tourist attraction.

The tribe argued that Hwal' bay Ba Enterprises was protected by sovereign immunity. But Judge Brenda Moody Whinery said it didn't apply in this case, which was initiated by the tribe, The Kingman Daily Miner reported.

The tribe ousted a non-Indian development company that had been operating the Skywalk. The company wants to see the financial data from the business.
