Supreme Court won't hear appeal filed by Indian tobacco firm





The U.S. Supreme Court won't be hearing an appeal from a Indian tobacco firm.

The justices took up petitions in Native Wholesale Company v. Idaho and Native Wholesale Supply Company v. Superior Court of California during a closed-door conference last Thursday. Both were denied without comment in an order list this morning.

Native Wholesale Supply Company is a business located on the Seneca Nation in New York.. The firm was fighting efforts to comply with state laws in Idaho and California.

The firm declared bankruptcy in 2011 after facing numerous state enforcement efforts.
