Now that the Whiteclay liquor stores’ licenses have been revoked, the Nebraska Attorney General is dropping his case against the four businesses that charged them with 22 violations of state liquor laws.
Nebraska AG Doug Peterson’s office announced the decision last week. Peterson had accused the establishments of a variety of violations, including bootlegging, selling liquor after hours, keeping inadequate records and failing to cooperate with investigators.
The stores shuttered at the end of April when the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission refused to renew their licenses. The state’s Supreme Court rejected an appeal by the businesses in September.
