Judge John Breeden strikes down regulation requiring bars to sell a certain % of food to keep alcoholic beverage license

According to the South Carolina Department of Revenue, nightclubs must get "substantial revenue" from food sales to keep a liquor license. Circuit Court Judge John Breeden ruled last week that the amount of food sales plays no factor in whether a liquor license can be issued. The Department has promised to appeal this ruling.
