Judge Advises a Smoking Loophole

Submitted by Rob on May 23, 2008 – 6:59 pmNo Comment

Washington has a state law that bans smoking in public places. A bar owner, Frank Schnarrs, was issued a citation for patrons smoking in his bar.

During his court appearance his judge offers a bit of advice:

“Maybe if you had a membership, private club, and charged something more than the cost of food and drink to be a member, you could get around it that way,”

I don’t know about you, but I have never heard of a judge actually presenting legal advice from the bench, especially one to get around a state law.

Does anyone else think the judge might be a smoker (lets hope cigar smoker) ?
