It is legal, at least in the US, for a store (or other entity) to refuse to sell any item to any individual for any non-prohibited reason (prohibited reasons are typically things like race or religion).
More over, in various US jurisdictions, it is prohibited to "furnish" alcohol to a "minor" (for example, under California's ABC law), which can be ...
You go into a store, pick up an item, go to the counter and you think you are legally entitled to own the item provided that you pay for it? Wrong. Wrong for any item, not just alcohol.
Items that are on the shelves in stores are not offers in terms of contract law. They are invitations to treat/bargain. When you take an item to the counter it is you who ...
The answers here are already correct, but wanted to make a quick comment over this
Even when I left the store to wait in the car they made him check out at a different register.
It is of course completely silly that this is required, but from what I was told when I worked at a liquor store this was needed. The idea is by checking out at a different ...
When is a drink classed as alcohol in the UK?
In england-and-wales alcohol, which requires a license to sell etc, is defined by s.191 of the Licensing Act 2003:
191 Meaning of “alcohol"
(1) In this Act, “alcohol” means spirits, wine, beer, cider or any
other fermented, distilled or spirituous liquor (in any state), but
does not include—
(a) alcohol ...
According to German law (Jugendschutzgesetz), §9:
Minors 14 years of age and older may drink undistilled alcoholic beverages, such as wine and beer, when accompanied by a Custodial Person,
Minors 16 years of age and older may drink undistilled alcoholic beverages, such as wine and beer, without accompaniment, and
Adults (18 and older) may drink distilled ...
Is there anything I can do so that the authorities investigate and revoke his privilege of driving a car?
Yes. Next time he drinks and gets behind the wheel, call the police and tell them that you are witnessing an intoxicated person about to drive. If the police witness him behind the wheel while intoxicated, he'll be issued a DUI, perhaps face jail time, ...
It is illegal to sell alcohol to a minor in Washington (RCW 66.44.270). The seller can get into various kinds of trouble, including losing their license, under liquor board regulations. However, as long as the establishment follows the rules for acceptable ID, they escape liability if in fact they sell alcohol to a minor: the license holder is legally ...
This would probably not be a drunk driving offense.
Under the UK "drunk in charge of a motor vehicle" law:
How is “in charge” defined?
There is no definition of “in charge” and the courts have been keen to
avoid an all-embracing test.
In determining if a person is in charge the court will consider:
Whether he was in the vehicle, if so ...
Well, moral obligations are not laws, nor sometimes even moral obligations. Some laws are based on what some courts and legislatures think are moral obligations.
We think cannibals have a moral obligation not to eat people; cannibals think non-cannibals are fools for passing up a good BBQ. As for a leader's moral responsibility for millions of lives, we can ...
The area is "closed" (not open), or "restricted" to alcohol consumption. Here is a memo reminding of alcohol restrictions, noting 36 CFR 2.35 which states that
The superintendent may close all or a portion of a public use area or
public facility within a park area to the consumption of alcoholic
beverages and/or to the possession of a ...
Firstly, this is actually a really good question - The Australian Constitution grants few explicit protections or rights to people, and it does not protect you from discrimination on the basis of age.
In any case, you'll find that it is not a violation of the Age Discrimination Act 2004 (Cth) - see s39. This makes an exemption, amongst others, to the Act ...
With forms AT-108 and AT-900 the license may be transferred to the personal representative and then the entire stock can be liquidated to any other license holding establishment.

There is no legal theory of which I'm aware which would allow a host to confiscate a guest's property without consent and consideration. Even if the host intends to return the property and both parties know this, the host still can't keep it even temporarily after the owner demands its return. File a police report, press charges and sue for damages.
With respect to many questions of law minors are not people. Human rights vest as people age: there are any number of variations by jurisdiction, but you will see the following (often constitutional) rights granted at different ages:
To own property
To enter into contracts
To work for pay
To decline an education
To consent to medical treatment
To be secure ...
It is quite likely that a constitutional amendment was (and is) not needed to ban alcohol. For example, if the Controlled Substances Act is constitutional (and I have no reason to believe it isn't) then alcohol could be added to it tomorrow and it could be removed the day after tomorrow.
Right there is the reason that you choose to use a constitutional ...
The criteria for refusing service in California is the patron being “obviously drunk”. 5 150ml mimosas is not a lot, even in an hour - it has approximately the same alcohol content as 2 425ml beers. I certainly wouldn’t be “obviously drunk” after that.
Only 18 year olds and over can serve or act as bartenders for on-premises consumption. Whether someone ...
The fine would typically be around your monthly income.
Legal basis: drunk driving per §316 StGB is punishable by up to one year in prison, but per §47 and §40 StGB short sentences are converted to a fine that depends on your daily net income (Tagessätze).
There is likely no impact. Despite this being a crime, it will not appear in your criminal record that ...
Yes, that would be legal, indeed required
According to the Michigan Dept of the Treasury:
Individuals or businesses that sell tangible personal property to the final consumer are required to remit a 6% sales tax on the total price (including shipping and handling charges) of their taxable retail sales to the State of Michigan. Sales of electricity, natural ...
They need only take " reasonable measures", which is fairly subjective sounding... I know... But it just means that it's a fact dependent analysis taking into consideration all of the facts that are readily available. So, for example, it would be a different burden if you had 10,000 people coming, vs 10.
If you post a sign saying no alcohol allowed on ...
Arizona law operates in terms of "spirituous liquor", which is defined as containing more than 0.5% alcohol by volume. You'd have to send the cheese to a lab to determine the actual alcohol content, but it is likely that the product has less than the threshold amount of alcohol. It is not clear why vanilla extract is not classified as a spirituous liquor, ...
Indiana's open container law is in Section 9-30-15-3 (b) of the Indiana Code.
(b) A person in a motor vehicle who, while the motor vehicle is in
operation or while the motor vehicle is located on the right-of-way of
a public highway, possesses a container:
(1) that has been opened;
(2) that has a broken seal; or
(3) from which some of ...
The first tax on a domestic product by the U.S. government was on distilled alcohol (1791). Since then, alcohol production and sale has been aggressively regulated by the federal government, ostensibly (if nothing else) to ensure the integrity of this revenue stream.
Today, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) of the U.S. Department of the ...
The police can arrest and charge anyone if they have a reasonable belief that a crime has been committed so: yes.
However, if the question is: can they secure a conviction the answer is a resounding no.
North Carolina law has three prohibitions on minors and alcohol: supplying to, possession of and buying.
Possession is easily dealt with: the minor never ...
Open containers in vehicles
Prohibition of Open Containers of Alcohol in Motor Vehicles as of 2009
To comply with the TEA-21 rules of the federal Department of
Transportation, a state's motor vehicle open container laws must:
Prohibit both possession of any open alcoholic beverage container and consumption of any alcoholic beverage in a ...
I think this relates to individual stores interpretation of California's "ABC Laws":
§ 25658. Sale to and consumption by person
under 21 years of age; Use by
peace officers to apprehend sellers
of alcoholic beverages to minors
(a) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision
(c), every person who sells, furnishes, gives, or
causes to be sold,...
Who in the fraternity would be prosecuted if this became an issue?
A lot of people could be held liable for this, including people who are not even in the fraternity. Anyone who has knowledge of the machine or the fact that it was possible for minors to access alcohol through it could technically be held liable if a prosecutor wanted to make that case. ...

A complete ban on alcohol by the federal government would most likely be held unenforceable. Congress's arguably strongest power to regulate is through the commerce clause.
The commerce clause as reinterpreted in United States v. Lopez, requires the regulated act to substantially affect or relate to interstate commerce. As long as a state permits alcohol to ...
As far as I know it isn't illegal in the UK to have under 18s ACT drinking alcoholic drinks, ensuring you are giving them non-alcoholic drinks. For most acting, actors will drink a non-alcoholic substance that looks like beer, since we wouldn't want drunk actors.
On the 8/6/16 in a Soap known as Coronation Street a 16/17 (I can't remember which) year old ...
