An application to sue the former Head of State, Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi, as part of a $5 million lawsuit seeking to reclaim ownership of customary land has been dismissed by the Supreme Court. 

In a decision handed down on Friday, the Court also found that filing suit against the Asian Development Bank (A.D.B.) in the same matter was not possible.
