– Liquormart (1996): This case is important because it
overruled Posadas, which held that a state could ban various gambling
ads, drinking ads, etc. on the rationale that if the state could
criminalize these activities (i.e., no drinking under the age of 18,
no gambling, etc.), then it could take the lesser step of prohibiting
ads promoting the activities. In this case, a state statute
prevented in liquor stores from advertising. P brought suit against
this statute, claiming it violated his First Am. rights. Was this
ban on liquor advertising a violation of P’s First Am. rights?
