A South Dakota Indian Reservation is suing a major beer corporation for $500 Million claiming they are the cause for extreme alcoholism on the reservation. Do they have a case? Hit the jump.


The Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota filed a federal suit on Thursday seeking damages from 5 major alcohol companies for health care, child services, damages and for a cure/treatment for alcoholism. The large sized reservation has banned alcohol since the 1800’s but still sees rampant alcoholism. The situation should unfold more in the coming weeks.
