News: Tanner Strickland Lenart Helps Client Avoid Hefty DABC Fine
C&J liquor law compliance attorney Tanner Strickland Lenart scored a recent victory for one her restaurant clients when she secured a minimal fine for her client under the Utah Transfer of License Act. Under the Act, first time offenders can be fined anywhere from $1,000 to $25,000. The DABC claimed that Tanner's client failed to inform them about a majority change in ownership in 2014. However, Tanner's client claimed that they believed that the proper paperwork had been submitted to the DABC by a former owner of the business, but that was not the case. Initially, the DABC imposed a $9,000 fine on Tanner's client, but that fine was later reduced to $2,500 after the assistant attorney general assigned to DABC realized incorrect information had been given to the DABC. In an article for the Salt Lake Tribune, Tanner said, "We're pleased that the Attorney General's Office called the meeting to consider the lower amount. Lamb's plans to pay the fine and get the wall up as soon as possible. They should be back to serving cocktails before Christmas." To read more about Tanner's victory and her client's response to the DABC fine, read herehere, and here.
