Marc Sorini was quoted in the January 9 Beverage Daily News on the expected decision in the Costco case. The 9th Circuit Appeals Court is expected to hand down its decision by the end of 2007. Marc Sorini expects the court to uphold the Commerce Clause. Mr. Sorini notes "if you have direct-to-retail privileges in state, you have to allow it out of state." He also notes that elsewhere, retailer lawsuits over direct shipping and face-to-face requirements are "percolating."
