Judge Rules in Favor of Indiana Wineries

A judge has ruled in favor of nine wineries allowing them to ship wine during the holidays. The wine makers filed suit to gain an injunction the state's policy against in-state wine shipments. As readers will recall, at issue was a rule put in place by the state state Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Commission disallowing in-state shipments after the US Supreme Court ruled on a Michigan case allowing out-of-state shipments. Out of state wine shipments (both to and from out of state) are still illegal in Indiana. Nine wineries participated in the suit. The judge has granted the injunction through March of next year. More from the Ft. Wayne Gazette.
