Pennsylvania: Cutner v. Newman, 2:05cv03007 (E.D. Pa)

On June 23, 2005, a consumer and a winery filed suit in federal court in Philadelphia challenging the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's ban on wine shipping. The Pennsylvania case is interesting, because it is a control state in which the ABC Board, not private parties, act as wholesalers and retailers. No answer has been filed yet.
