Gabriel Invst v. Texas Alcoholic, No. 21-50322 (5th Cir. 2022)Annotate this Case
In this case involving a dispute related to Texas liquor laws, the court previously certified the following two questions to the Supreme Court of Texas:
1.) Does Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code Section 22.16(f) “continue to exempt a public corporation if that corporation sells some or all its shares to a non-exempt corporation, and, if so,
2.) Whether the exempt corporation can acquire additional package store permits.
The Supreme Court of Texas affirmatively answered both questions, resolving the appeal. Thus, the court reversed the district court's judgment and remanded for further proceedings.
This opinion or order relates to an opinion or order originally issued on January 28, 2022.
