Right to Smoke in Your own Home vs Others rights
April 19, 2013 - Sylvia Heldreth
A jury has found a homeowners association negligent for failing to resolve a secondhand smoke dispute between neighbors at a California condominium. After a five-week trial, Superior Court jurors awarded a family more than $15,000, finding the condo association and management failed to ensure the non-smoking family's right to the "quiet enjoyment" of their own unit. A bill is pending in the state legislature that would ban smoking in multiunit residences like condominiums. Smokers say that they should be able to smoke in their own homes.
