GASP v. Mecklenburg County

A complaint seeking to ban smoking in the county’s buildings and facilities on the grounds that a state statute assuring the right of “handicapped persons” to full participation in the social and economic life of the state would require such a prohibition.  The Court of Appeals of North Carolina dismissed the complaint, contending that the legislature did not have smoking in mind when enacting the statute.
