Convenience stores get injunction

Because of my schedule yesterday, I'm a bit late in posting the outcome of the injunction requested by the Midwest Retailers Association over the convenience store licensing law.

But they were successful, as Federal Court Judge James Carr ruled that the City of Toledo could not begin enforcing the law until July 1.

Uniformed Toledo police officers began delivering letters to convenience stores earlier this week. According to today's paper, Police Chief Mike Navarre said the letters were because only about 25% of required stores had applied for the license by the May 1 start date.

A hearing for the injunction will be June 20th.
