Supreme Court Overturns Wine Shipping Restrictions

One of the few, very few mind you, drawbacks to moving theFamily to Cleveland is the fact that we may not be able to have our favorite wines shipped to us in Ohio due to state restrictions. That may very soon not be the case (get it....case) any more:
States must permit in-state and out-of-state wineries to play by the same rules when it comes to shipping their product directly to consumers, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a decision that is likely to shift the battleground of the wine wars from the courts back to the state legislatures.

Just let the wine flow, like a mountain stream, let the wine flow, yeah you know what I mean.
In addition to New York and Michigan, six other states permit direct shipment by in-state wineries while restricting it for others. They are Connecticut, Massachusetts, Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Vermont.
And the Wine flowed, the people rejoiced and all was right with the world.
