Will Bader Ginsburg be able to hear the arguments and/or decide?

This obviously has no effect on me and I'm no lawyer, but the 21st Amendment seems to make this pretty cut and dry to me.

One would think, but alas, constitutional questions are never "cut and dry".   

@steve8 You ought to read the 21st Amendment to fully understand it. And once you read it, like most of us, you still won't actually fully understand it. But it in no way shape or form allows for the economic discrimination of out of state wine merchants vs in state wine merchants. In fact, the dormant commerce clause makes it pretty clear that states cannot economically discriminate. that is what this case is about. Discrimination, constitutional law style.

How does this have no effect on you? are you a wine consumer? merchant? winemaker?

 

In regards to RBG, she was not in attendance yesterday, and she will be working from home for the next month. She does plan to offer her opinion and vote on the cases decided, come March through June. We expect her to support wine consumers and retailers, and rule in the favor of Total Wine.

Well sure, he’s Canadian NOW.

But for most of his life he was a Nigerian prince whose inheritance was being held hostage by a corrupt government. And I know that because I spent a lot of money trying to help him recover his fortune.

It turned out to be a frustrating exercise, kinda like interstate wine shipping.
