The Court held that state laws discriminating against out of state liquor producers violated the commerce clause, notwithstanding the terms of the 21st Amendment, alllowing states to regulate liquor sales.  (Opinion here). As CrimProfs our natural reaction is "who cares"?  But this case, like many other major constitutional decisions, involves application of criminal statutes. [Jack Chin]
