Indiana Alcohol Board Wins Sales Permit Fight
Indiana liquor retailers have lost another round in their lawsuit against the state’s alcohol control board, Indystar.com reported March 5.
The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers sued the state Alcohol and Tobacco Commission in January 2010 for granting more permits for selling beer than were allowed under state law.
A Marion Superior Court had already ruled in favor of the state. The appeals court unanimously supported the original ruling.
The president of the retailers’ association, John Livengood, said, “We spent a lot of time and money defending a law that we think is pretty clear.”
