Missouri Alcohol Advertising Laws Struck Down

Share Post

The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down several Missouri alcohol beverage advertising laws citing the state’s failure to demonstrate the laws advanced the state’s interest (e.g. in promoting responsible consumption) and that the scope of the laws went beyond what was necessary to achieve that interest. As this decision is opposed to a Ninth Circuit ruling on a similar case, it is possible the U.S. Supreme Court could hear the case if appealed.
