In response to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania agreeing to hear the case of beer being sold (but not consumed) in Sheetz General Stores in the state of Pennsylvania, as reported here recently, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has issued the following statement:
SUPREME COURT DECISION TO HEAR PLCB
APPEAL IN SHEETZ CASE
“If allowed to stand, Commonwealth Court’s decision could compromise the board’s longstanding mission of controlling the sale of alcohol in Pennsylvania by imposing new duties on thousands of holders of eating place malt beverage and restaurant licenses in Pennsylvania.
“If allowed to stand, Commonwealth Court’s decision could also subject these licensees, who have operated under the LCB’s historical interpretation of the liquor code, to citation for failure to follow the court’s interpretation.
“We look forward to making our case before the Supreme Court and believe that we will prevail.”
