BUFFALO (AP) - A judge is temporarily barring state officials from enforcing a new law requiring the collection of taxes on cigarettes sold on Indian reservations.

State Supreme Court Justice Rose Sconiers (SKON'-yers) signed the order this week and told government officials to appear in her court next month to show why she shouldn't issue a permanent injunction against the tax collection.
