Man Barred From Smoking Inside His Own Home
A judge has given him a temporary restraining order to stop him from smoking in his Washington, D.C. home.
Edwin Gray’s next door neighbors in northeast Washington have filed a civil suit claiming they’re being harmed by smoke that sneaks into their home through a hole in the basement. They are seeking an injunction and $500,000 in damages.
A judge issued a temporary injunction last week saying neither Gray nor any family or guests may smoke in the home the family has owned for 50 years. Gray’s sister, Mozella Johnson, says they will fight.
