Dallas, Texas – A group in opposition of beer and wines sales in dry areas of Dallas are filing suit to stop a referendum on sales citywide. As reported by NBC DFW News, the lawsuit is set to be filed Friday after an election was ordered earlier in the week by the Dallas City Council.
Attorney Andrew Siegel, who reportedly represents a group of local ministers, liquor store owners, and community groups, is quoted in the report as stating of the Dallas November referendum, “There’s a right way and a wrong way to wet up the city…This is real serious business. We’re talking about parts of the city and neighborhoods that have been dry for 100 years plus, Oak Cliff, Preston Hollow, etc.”
As noted in the report, the lawsuit is seeking to have a court find that a petition demanding the referendum did not have the required number of signatures by voters.
