Iowa Bar Owners Group Drops Suit Over Smoking Ban

May 12, 2009, 3:27 PM

A coalition of Iowa bar owners has decided to drop its lawsuit over the state's smoking ban, but a spokesman says the fight is not over.

After the bar owners' decision, a Polk County judge last week dismissed the lawsuit that challenged the constitutionality of the smoking ban. It was filed by several bar owners groups on July 1, 2008, the same day the Iowa Smokefree Air Act went into effect.  The lawsuit claims the ban, which prohibits smoking in nearly all public places including restaurants and most bars, is unconstitutional for several reasons.

Brian Froehlich, of Wilton, is with the Iowa Bar Owners Coalition. He says the groups are redirecting their efforts
and will support the bars that are going to court to protect their businesses.
