State ex rel. Edmondson v. Grand River Enterprises Six Nations, Ltd.

The State accused a tobacco manufacturer, who had not participated in the Master Settlement Agreement, from accurately contributing to the escrow account, as required by law for such non-participating manufacturers.  The State claimed the manufacturer was selling more cigarettes within the state than the manufacturer had claimed.  The lower court ordered the tobacco manufacturer to contribute several million dollars, as owed for previous years. In this decision, the appeals court upholds the lower court's order.
