Courts overrule Iowa City liquor license denials

Take That, City Council

Gazette: "Administrative Law Judge Margaret LaMarche reversed the City Council’s denials of liquor license renewals last summer to downtown bars Fieldhouse and Etc."

But of course we'll waste the money defending it: "The battle is not over, though. City Attorney Eleanor Dilkes said the city would appeal the decision ..."

Look, City Council, stop wasting money on law enforcement as selective harrassment.

Meantime, every, every, EVERY discussion of the "problem" downtown needs to be prefaced with clear statements that the 21 drinking age is unrealistic, unenforcable, and unjust, and some references to "when you're 18 you're an adult" would be nice.

Till then: Ha, ha, ha.
