|South Dakota Sixth Judicial Circuit|
In November 2009 Judge Trandahl will be hearing and ruling on the legality of the proposed South Dakota Smoking Ban Referendum, which is expected to appear on the state's 2010 ballot. The measure, if approved, would ask voters to veto the expanded smoking ban that was set to begin July 1, 2009. The American Cancer Society is claiming that South Dakota’s expanded smoking-ban law can’t be referred to a public vote because it would violate the state constitution as "it is necessary for the immediate preservation of public health."
