Court: Smoking Litvaks Can't Keep Local Nannies From Acting Like Athols


Commenter rafuzo notes that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has thrown out a Superior Court decision against the town of Athol's ban on smoking in private clubs. A suit brought by the American Lithuanian Naturalization Club of Athol contended that the town board of health's prohibition exceeded the Bay State's 2004 ban on workplace smoking. The SJC, however, says the 2004 ban does not preclude additional restrictions by local communities.
