Ind. Decisions - "Indiana Court of Appeals upholds Evansville smoking ban"

Thursday's NFP opinions in the case of VFW Post 2953, et al. v. City of Evansville and Evansville Common Council (NFP) and in the case of Paul Stieler Enterprises, Inc. d/b/a Harbor Bay, et al. v. City of Evansville and Evansville Common Council (NFP) are featured in this story this weekend in the Evansville Courier & Press. A brief quote:

The Indiana Court of Appeals said Friday that a Vanderburgh County judge correctly denied injunctions requested by a group of tavern owners and private clubs against Evansville's smoking ban, which took effect last April.
Neither of these opinions was designated for publication by the COA under the criteria for publication set out in Appellate Rule 65(A):
A. Criteria for Publication. * * * A Court of Appeals opinion shall be published if the case:

(1) establishes, modifies, or clarifies a rule of law;
(2) criticizes existing law; or
(3) involves a legal or factual issue of unique interest or substantial public importance.

Other Court of Appeals cases shall be decided by not-for-publication [NFP] memorandum decision.
