CASE ENTRY

Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission

Texas’ ban on public corporations owning liquor stores was written by a lobbyist for Texas liquor retailers who wanted to keep competitors out of the state. Does that mean the ban was intended to discriminate against interstate commerce? You might think so, but the Fifth Circuit isn’t so sure and asks the district court to take a second look.
