  • State court has no jurisdiction in cigarette fight

    Pierre, South Dakota (AP)

    The state court system has no jurisdiction over South Dakota’s fight to force a Canadian cigarette manufacturer make payments under the national settlement with tobacco companies, the state Supreme Court ruled Oct. 23.

    Grand River Enterprises Six Nations Ltd., which makes cigarettes on an Indian reservation in Ontario, does not have a sufficient connection with South Dakota to give state courts authority over the company, the high court said in a unanimous ruling.
