The OLCC issues Final Orders in contested cases involving liquor license and service permit applications and violations of the Liquor Control Act. Many of these decisions have been summarized in a Case Digest.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The statutes and administrative rules enforced by OLCC have changed considerably over the years. In many cases, this will not be evident from the Digest because a particular issue has not been litigated, or litigated recently, in an OLCC contested case. Consequently, the reader is advised to use the Digest as a starting point, not a stopping place, for research into a particular subject. OLCC has attempted to ensure that all summaries accurately reflect the principle of law for which a cited Final Order stands, but the digest is only a summary of a selection of OLCC cases; it is not the complete body of OLCC precedent. The reader bears the responsibility of reading Final Orders in their entirety to determine the accuracy and context of each summary.
