SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The U-S Supreme Court ruling striking down laws that prohibit Internet and mail-order purchases of wine if the sellers are from out of state is expected to have no effect in Utah.
The high court ruling struck down Michigan and New York laws because they treated out-of-state sellers differently than it did those within the states.
Utah bans such sales whether the sellers are in-state or out-of-state.
Thom Roberts of the Utah Attorney General's Office says that means Utah laws have not been rendered unconstitutional.
