Gardere Assists Retail Client With Texas Liquor Battle


Dallas Business Journal and Law360 both covered Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s filing suit against the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for the right to sell hard alcohol in its stores. The Arkansas-based corporation, which also happens to be the largest beer and wine retailer in Texas, argues that the state's refusal to allow publicly traded corporations to sell distilled spirits, and its exception for hotels, is both "irrational" and unconstitutional.

Wal-Mart is represented by Gardere Partners Mark T. Mitchell and Frederick W. Sultan IV, along with a team of attorneys from Susan Godfrey LLP.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
