Sella v. Agadir

A customer sued a restaurant for damages caused to her by exposure to second hand smoking while dining at the restaurant.  At the time, the restaurant had insufficient signs prohibiting smoking, restaurant staff did not enforce the smoke free law, and ashtrays were provided on the tables.  In a small claims procedure, the court awarded the customer full compensation allowed by law in order to deter business' owners from allowing customers to smoke.
