Victory for nonsmokers: Court upholds KC’s law

Check off another victory for KC’s tough smoke-free law.

On Tuesday, the Missouri Court of Appeals upheld the law passed by voters in 2008.

The result: Smoking continues to be banned in bars, restaurants and many other public places in Kansas City.

That’s wonderful news for tens off thousands of Kansas Citians who don’t want to be exposed in public places to harmful cigarette and pipe smoke.

The victory was yet another defeat for Jonathan Sternberg, the attorney representing a bar that is challenging the city’s law. He has long claimed that state law doesn’t allow the city to prohibitlucky strike cigarettes in certain public places.

So far, however, the courts are agreeing with the city’s legal team, which says the city can regulate smoking in public places.
