A nonsmoking father objected to secondhand tobacco smoke around his 2-year-old son, who has asthma and has had repeated respiratory infections, bronchitis, allergies and earaches. As part of a joint custody agreement, a Warren County judge ordered the smoking mother to keep her son away from secondhand smoke. Each parent will have custody for about six months per year.
