SCOTUS denies cert. in Total Wine’s antitrust lawsuit over Connecticut’s post-and-hold, minimum pricing, and volume discount laws

The Supreme Court denied Connecticut Fine Wine’s request for review of the Second Circuit denial of its challenge to Connecticut’s alcoholic beverage post-and-hold, minimum pricing, and volume discount laws.

So, despite the great dissent over the 2nd Circuit’s refusal to hear the case en banc, the challenge that many commentators hoped would end a circuit split over the enforceability of some state-mandated pricing legislation will not be an issue before the court in the near future.

You can read our analysis of the initial opinion and get some background on the different provisions regarding alcohol sales that Connecticut Fine Wines was challenging here.

Ashley Brandt

Hi there! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Ashley Brandt and I’m an attorney in Chicago representing clients in the Food and Beverage, Advertising, Media, and Real Estate industries. A while back I kept getting calls and questions from industry professionals and attorneys looking for advice and information on a fun and unique area of law that I’m lucky enough to practice in. These calls represented a serious lack of, and need for, some answers, news, and information on the legal aspects of marketing and media. I've got this deep seeded belief that information should be readily available and that the greatest benefit from the information age is open access to knowledge... so ... this blog seemed like the best way to accomplish that. I enjoy being an attorney and it’s given me some amazing opportunities, wonderful experiences, and an appreciation and love for this work. I live in Chicago and work at an exceptional law firm, Goldstein & McClintock, with some truly brilliant people. Feel free to contact me at any time with any issues, comments, concerns… frankly, after reading this far, I hope you take the time to at least let me know what you think about the blog and how I can make it a better resource.
