Ohio’s smoking ban, which has now been effect for four years, still burdens Ohio’s permit holders. OLBA Treasurer Dick Allen is still valiantly fighting the ban on your behalf.

On April 6, the Ohio Supreme Court agreed to consider the legality of Ohio’s 2006 statewide smoking ban in a case involving Zeno’s, Allen’s bar. The court will review the Nov. 16 Franklin County Court of Appeals ruling against Zeno’s. The appeals court overturned a Franklin County trial court’s decision dismissing $33,000 in fines assessed against them for violating the smoking ban.
