Saad v. Village of Orland Park

A village enacted a smoke-free law that had a single exception for Tobacco House, a cigar lounge, so long as that Tobacco House sold nothing but tobacco products and that the owners maintained a business license in good standing. The owner of the cigar lounge pled guilty for tax evasion, and the village later denied the business license. The cigar lounge claimed the license denial violated equal protection and that the smoke-free law violated due process because it was unconstitutionally vague. The village moved to dismiss the case, and the court agreed.
