Gardere Assists Retail Client With Texas Liquor Battle

13 February 2015 News

Dallas Business Journal and Law360 both covered Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s filing suit against the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for the right to sell hard alcohol in its stores. The Arkansas-based corporation, which also happens to be the largest beer and wine retailer in Texas, argues that the state's refusal to allow publicly traded corporations to sell distilled spirits, and its exception for hotels, is both "irrational" and unconstitutional.

Wal-Mart is represented by Gardere Partners Mark T. Mitchell and Frederick W. Sultan IV, along with a team of attorneys from Susan Godfrey LLP.
