Judge Upholds Fremont Booze Restrictions

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A judge will allow the city of Las Vegas to restrict packaged liquor sales at the Fremont Street Experience, in spite of opposition from the souvenir stores that sell it.

U.S. District Chief Judge Gloria Navarro on Wednesday dissolved a temporary injunction that blocked enforcement of two new ordinances. The rules restrict alcohol advertisements on store windows and cap the size of malt liquor or beer containers at 32 ounces.

Navarro also declined to block a third ordinance, which prohibits glass bottles and aluminums cans at the pedestrian mall.

The council has been clamping down on store-bought liquor and steering people toward more expensive casino and restaurant liquor, saying people getting drunk fast are scaring away visitors.

The souvenir stores sought to block the rules, saying they wrongfully favor casinos.
