The American Legion will file a brief with the court over a pending lawsuit about the smoking ban.

The legion itself isn't a party in the suit, said Don Lanthorn, department service director for the state of Ohio American Legion.

But the suit would decide the group's fate in the smoking ban -- whether or not members can smoke in members- only environments like club rooms or bars.

A Columbus court on May 14 will hear the suit filed by tavern owners and Smoke Free Ohio that asks for clubs like the legion to not be exempt to the ban.
