“Friend of the court” brief challenging on various grounds the legality of a state police raid of a smoke shop on Narragansett Indian tribal land. The Court upheld the state’s actions in 2004, but the appeals court reversed in part in 2005. The full appellate court then upheld the district court’s initial ruling, and a petition for review to the U.S. Supreme Court was denied.
