The St. Regis Mohawk Tribe wants a federal judge to stop the state from taxing reservation cigarette sales. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Albany argues that the plan violates their federally protected rights and would force the tribe to discard its own regulatory system in order to enforce the state's plan.
