PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING (WINE)
DATE RENDERED: 4/6/2007
While COAKY agreed with Metro that the ABC Board applied an incorrect rule of law in measuring the 700 feet distance between licensees required by KRS 241.075, it further concluded that this statutory requirement is unconstitutional as local or special legislation in violation of Sections 59 and 60 of the Kentucky Constitution.
