A man smokes a cigarette in front of a pub in Bensheim early July 30, 2008. A German smoking ban in indoor public places is partly in breach of the constitution, the country's highest court ruled on Wednesday. The Federal Constitutional Court said small bars were at an unfair disadvantage due to the ban, which came into effect in most of Germany's 16 states at the start of the year.
