An Omaha pool hall owner has renewed his legal challenge of the state's smoking ban.

Big John's Billiards has filed a revised complaint in Lancaster County District Court to argue the ban that went into effect June 1 is unconstitutional.

The statewide smoking ban includes exemptions for cigar bars, some hotel rooms, tobacco-only retailers, facilities that do research on the health effects of smoking, and private residences.

Big John's argues that the exceptions to the ban are unfair and should make the ban unconstitutional.
