Smoke shop to remain with Squaxin

Author:

The Nisqually Indian Tribe has failed to gain control of the cigarette business at Frank’s Landing. A federal judge on Wednesday in Seattle dismissed the tribe’s lawsuit against Gov. Chris Gregoire and members of the Squaxin Island Tribe. The suit contended the state had illegally allowed the Squaxins to run the Frank’s Landing smoke-shop and collect taxes there.
