The Doctors: Secondhand Smoke Lawsuit
According to The Doctors, nearly half of all people living in apartments in this country, live with smoke from a neighboring apartment. One New York City apartment dweller is $120,000 richer, because of a lawsuit over secondhand smoke infiltration. Attorney Areva Martin explained that anti-smoking laws prohibit smoking in public buildings, restaurants, or office buildings. But the law also states that you can’t smoke in your apartment if that smoke has a way to get into the apartments of others, because it exposes others to secondhand smoke.
