MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — For a second time, a West Virginia man is challenging the tobacco ban at state college campuses.

The Dominion Post (http://bit.ly/1GbFpPH ) reports that Dennis Cole filed a similar suit in 2013 and it was dismissed. His latest filing occurred this week in Monongalia County Circuit Court.

West Virginia University's Board of Governors adopted the policy in 2012.

According to Cole's lawsuit, the policy applies to any road or thoroughfare immediately adjacent or passing through WVU-owned property. The lawsuit also makes other claims about the tobacco policy.

Cole works at the Health Sciences Center.
