Bullitt Fiscal Court et al. v Bullitt County Board of Health

The Bullitt County Board of Health enacted a regulation for the county prohibiting tobacco smoking in all enclosed public places, in enclosed places of employment, in certain outdoor public places, and in private clubs within the county. The Fiscal Court and eight cities within the county filed a petition against the Board, arguing that the Board usurped its authority. A trial court held the regulation invalid, but the Court of Appeals reversed.

In this decision, the state Supreme Court found the Board exceeded its statutory authority when adopting the smoking prohibition.
