Appeals court rules against Winnebago tribal corporation in tobacco case

Businesses owned by the Winnebago Tribe must turn over tobacco records to federal authorities, an appeals court ruled this week.

Ho-Chunk Inc., the tribe's economic development arm, argued that it wasn't covered by a particular recordkeeping provision of the Contraband Cigarette Trafficking Act. Section 2343(a) of the federal law does not specifically mention tribal governments or their businesses.
