9 a.m. The City of Evansville passed an ordinance banning smoking in workplaces and other public places, including private clubs and taverns, but exempting riverboat casinos. Several private clubs and tavern owners sought injunctive and declaratory relief on grounds the ordinance violates the Indiana Constitution. The Vanderburgh Circuit Court denied injunctive relief and entered a judgment upholding the ordinance. The Court of Appeals affirmed. See VFW Post 2953 v. City of Evansville, No. 82A01-1206-PL-255 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb. 15, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), vacated, and Paul Stieler Enterprises, Inc. v. City of Evansville, No. 82A01-1205-CT-242 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb 15, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted petitions to transfer the cases and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeals.
