Ophir v. Rozeti

A restaurant guest sued the restaurant for not enforcing the prohibition of smoking in public places under the smoke free law. In a small claims procedure, the Court found the restaurant liable, because the restaurant did not post signs prohibiting smoking, as required by law, did not order customers to refrain from smoking, and encouraged smoking by providing guests with ashtrays.
