Feds to appeal dismissal of Kansas tobacco charges
 
Wichita, Kansas (AP)

Federal prosecutors will try to revive the indictment of a Kansas tobacco wholesaler and several associates accused of trying to avoid paying $25 million in cigarette taxes to Indian tribes and the state of Oklahoma.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot threw out the indictment last month, ruling it was unconstitutionally vague. The judge said the case was based on the government’s opinion and not on any federal, Kansas or Oklahoma statute.
