More news from South Dakota about banning tobacco for native’s religious practices in prison.
The case, once again, is Native American Council of Tribes v. Weber (D. S.D.):
The court previously issued an order explaining how the ban violates federal religious freedom rights here.
Since the prison system could not agree with the prisoners on a way to craft an injunction, Judge Schreier simply issued an order stating, “[D]efendants are enjoined from banning tobacco used during Native American religious ceremonies.”
