Smoking Case Hearing Set For August | Tobacco & Cigarettes News [cached]

Jim Suwalski, owner of Hot Pockets Retail Cigarette Outlet, filed suit March 23, 2010, against the city asking that a judge overturn an administrative hearing ruling that he violated Topeka's smoking cigarettes ban ordinance.

Defense attorneys for the city on Friday filed a motion to have the case dismissed.
A hearing on the issue is set for 1:30 p.m. Aug. 3 in Division 7.
Suwalski tested the ordinance, which took effect Dec. 4, 2009, by smoking cigarettes a cigarette Jan. 20, 2010, in front of police in his 10-by-10-foot cigarettes online shop. The shop is located inside Hot Pockets Billards and Sports Bar, 1909 N.E. Seward, which is owned by his wife, Sharon.
The Suwalskis contend the city smoking cigarettes ban, which includes an exception for retail cheap cigarettes stores, wasn't violated when Jim Suwalski smoked inside his discount cigarettes shop, which has no walls. The shop's boundaries are marked by tape.

Jim Suwalski, owner of the smoke shop in Hot Pockets, 1909 N.E. Seward, lights up a cigarette in the smoke shop section of the bar. He wants to challenge the city's recent smoking ban in court.

"Every revolution began in a bar," owner Jim Suwalski joked from inside an area delineated by blue tape.
Suwalski drew the line in the carpet in anticipation of the city council's September passage of the ban, which took effect Dec. 4. The ordinance prohibits smoking in public places. Public places like bars - but not smoke shops. So Suwalski, as the tale is now commonly told, created a smoke shop inside his bar. Passing from one establishment to another, however, is only a matter of crossing the thin blue line.
The city has previously said Hot Pockets is violating the new law. Suwalski answered in what can only be described as a bring-it-on moment - he called the police and told them to cite him. (The department kindly said it would ticket the business at its convenience.)
The state's liquor regulators told Suwalski on Tuesday he couldn't allow drinks in the smoke shop. Hence, the division.
Jim Suwalski said he has asked for a compromise. But as of Wednesday night, he still believed the city is out to get him. So he pulled another Seneca full-flavor 100 from a pack and flicked his Bic. He blew into the air. As the smoke disregarded the tape's boundaries, Suwalski shook his head for the umpteenth time.
"Every revolution began in a bar," owner Jim Suwalski joked from inside an area delineated by blue tape.
Mr. Suwalski, what you're "fighting" for is of no importance to the world.
Thanks for the best laugh I've had for ages, Suwalski and patrons. (Not laughing at you - but with you - that masking tape on the table did it for me!!!)

Suwalski accused of violating city's clean air ordinance
Hot Pockets tobacco shop owner Jim Suwalski faces a hearing next month on a citation accusing him of violating Topeka's smoking ban.
Suwalski said Friday that Kendall McVay, an administrative hearing officer for the city, is scheduled to hear the case at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 17 at the city's Cyrus K. Holliday Building, 620 S.E. Madison.
Suwalski is accused of violating the city's clean air ordinance banning smoking in most public places, which took effect Dec. 4 after being approved by the Topeka City Council Sept. 29.
The ordinance makes exceptions allowing smoking in a limited number of public places, including "retail tobacco stores. Suwalski contends it consequently allows for smokers to light up in his 10-foot by 10-foot tobacco shop, Hot Pockets Retail Cigarette Outlet, located inside Hot Pockets Billiards and Sports Bar at 1919 N.E. Seward Ave.
Suwalski said that while the tobacco shop has no walls, its boundaries are marked off by duct tape. Suwalski holds a retail license to operate the tobacco shop, while the bar is licensed to his wife, Sharon Suwalski.
Jim will be found guilty under the administrative hearing rules and will have to file an appeal to district court where the rule of law should prevail. JMO
