Judge expected to issue ruling in Seneca Nation tobacco tax case
A federal judge is expected to issue a ruling in the Seneca Nation tobacco taxation case.

The tribe asked for a temporary restraining order to prevent the state of New York from imposing a tobacco tax on the reservation. The tribe says the plan infringes on its treaty rights and its sovereignty.

According to a poll commissioned by the tribe, nearly 70 percent of respondents said they supported treaty rights.
