The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc. is pleased to announce that Attorney Lisa A. Wafer recently secured the dismissal of a liquor permit violation issued against her client. The decision was rendered by the Ohio Liquor Commission after Attorney Wafer successfully argued that the citing officers did not establish appropriate evidence for the violation.
A recent bill allowing larger populated cities and townships to create "outdoor refreshment areas", which are exempt from Ohio's prohibitions on the possession of an open-container of alcohol outside of designated permit premises, has unanimously passed the Ohio Senate.
With the publicity surrounding the changes to gambling laws, and the surfacing of internet and things of that nature, liquor permit holders, business owners, and legal scholars alike, are wondering what the future of Ohio law holds.
