Two bars targeted in smoking ban lawsuits

Taverns in Columbus and Cincinnati are the targets of the first lawsuits alleging violations of Ohio's 2-year-old smoking ban.

Zeno's, 384 W 3rd Ave., and O'Neal's Tavern in the Queen City are being sued "because of their repeated and extensive violations over the last two years," a release from Attorney General Richard Cordray's office.

According to court documents, Zeno's has been cited for nine violations and fines of more than $28,000, while O'Neal's has been cited for 12 violations and fined more than $21,000, the attorney general's office said.

"The issue at hand is clear disregard for Ohio law," said Cordray in the release. "These establishments have been warned and fined repeatedly over a two-year period to no avail. They continuously push the limits and have given us no alternative but to seek the court's intervention."

Ohioans banned virtually all smoking indoors statewide in November 2006, although the law wasn't enforced until May 2007. Since then, more than 44,000 alleged violations have been called in to Ohio's toll-free enforcement number: (866) 559-6446.
