The Northwest Arkansas Times
chronicles a lawsuit filed by four Fayetteville bar operators
over the city's smoking ordinance
. The dispute turns on when food is "incidental" to bar service. If it becomes more than incidental, that makes a bar subject to the smoking ban. The lawyer for the bar owners doesn't rule out a challenge to the new state law on smoking in public places which prohibits smoking where anyone younger than 21 is allowed to enter as a customer or employee.
