Nebraska sues Seneca-Cayuga Tribe over tobacco
Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning is suing the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma for allegedly failing to pay into a tobacco escrow account.

Bruning says the tribe's tobacco company sold 3,620,400 cigarettes in Nebraska in 2003. He says the tribe owes $70,580 as part of multi-state, billion-dollar tobacco settlement.

The tribe eventually agreed to pay the money. But Bruning says the tribe didn't pay the full amount and now owes nearly $159,000.

In Oklahoma, the tribe says it paid nearly $4 million into the state's escrow account. The tribe is now suing in federal court to recover that money.
