This to me is absolutely rediculous!!!

Justice Ronna L. Beck’s decision comes after Mr. Gray’s next-door neighbors – a couple with one child and another on the way – filed in December a civil lawsuit claiming Gray’s cigarette smoke causes harm to their family when it seeps into their home through a hole in the basement. In addition to the ban, the claim asks for $500,000 in damages.

Uuumm.. maybe they should fix the hole in their basement if it's that big? But, I doubt the smoke "seeps" out of the house, travels through the air, and makes a direct beeline for the hole in the basement which has to be pretty close to the ground.

He and his sister have told the network that they intend to fight the injunction, which stops any family or guests from smoking cigarettes, cigars, or marijuana in their home – though they can step outside for a smoke.

They can't smoke in their own house because it harms the neighbors, but they can step outside and smoke???
