Attorney General announces that U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review state court’s smoking ban ruling

DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers announced today that the U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review a recent Colorado Supreme Court ruling that upheld the state’s smoking ban as it applied to onstage theater productions.

“The Colorado Supreme Court’s December decision, upholding the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act in the context of theaters, was well reasoned in upholding the law,” Suthers said. “Although the Curious Theater case would have been fascinating to argue at the U.S. Supreme Court, I am pleased that the justices have declined to hear this case.”

Suthers argued the case himself before the Colorado Supreme Court at Alamosa High School as part of the Courts in the Community program.
