Was Pandemic Law Limiting Hours of Liquor Sales Constitutional?
Highland Tavern LLC et al. v. Michael DeWine, governor of the State of Ohio et al., Case No. 2022-0014
Tenth District Court of Appeals (Franklin County)
- Did the governor violate the constitution with an emergency rule during the COVID-19 pandemic ordering liquor permit holders to stop serving alcohol after 10 p.m.?
- Can a liquor permit holder seek a declaratory judgment in common pleas court to have an emergency rule declared unconstitutional while pursuing a separate administrative appeal to have its liquor license reinstated?
