US: Judge makes further ruling against NY wine law
District Judge, Richard Berman, made the ruling on Tuesday; a month ago he ruled that the existing law prohibiting direct sales to NY consumers from out-of-state wineries was unconstitutional. The original case had been brought by Swedenburg Estate Vineyards of Virginia.
New York is one of the 30 states which require liquor imported into the state to be sold only through licensed wholesalers but it does allow NY wineries to ship their products direct to consumers within the state. Berman ruled earlier that this was discriminatory.
The judge agreed to delay enforcement of the ruling, giving state officials and wholesalers time to appeal.
