In my Monday rant, I mentioned that the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals was hearing arguments on the appeal concerning the wine shipping law.
The state was represented by David Hadas, an assistant Massachusetts attorney general. It was his claim that the Massachusetts wine shipping law was actually "pro-competition and pro-small business. Out-of-state wineries that exceed the law’s production cap have no problem selling their products in Massachusetts through the wholesale and retail system."
The Court of Appeals probably won't issue a decision for 3-6 months. So we have to wait even longer, hoping the Court agrees with the lower court that the law was unconstitutional.
