Your question raises some interesting questions. Bringing a lawsuit to recover money would not solve your problem, so the best remedy for you would be an injunction. The issue would be whether the Court would consider smoking a nuisance. As far as I know, this issue has not been addressed by a Delaware court.

Once briefs have been submitted by all the parties, there is no time limit for a judge to render his decision. I'm assuming your case is a civil case rather than a criminal one.
