New York City’s ban on e-cigarettes is being challenged by a smokers’ rights group that filed a lawsuit on Tuesday seeking to overturn the legislation, according to a story by Mara Gay for The Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition.
E-cigarettes were added to the city’s 2002 Smoke-Free Air Act, which originally had banned tobacco smoking in public places.
An attorney for the plaintiffs said there was no tobacco-industry or e-cigarette-industry involvement in the lawsuit.
