update on the New York state vs NY Indian tribes cigarette tax showdown

Long story short, the state court has overturned it's decision to halt NY state from collecting the state cigarette tax, and the federal injunction for now is still in place for just two New York tribes. The Senecas and Cayugas are fighting to keep the current federal injunction ruling against the NY state cig tax being collected on Indian Reservation stores in place(hope they're successful in doing this, and even get a permanent injunction in the end), and the Oneida Nation is now filing it's own federal lawsuit to seek an injunction, as the Senecas and Cayugas currently have(albeit one that'll expire by September 28th, unless a federal judge rules to extend his imposed injunction against NY state for 2 tribes).
