News: Tanner Lenart featured on KUER on liquor laws in Utah
Tanner Lenart, C&J's premier attorney specializing in liquor laws, was featured on KUER this week. Her clients are mostly bars and restaurants, and she helps them navigate Utah’s complicated alcohol regulations. “Everything from getting their licenses, whether that’s a bar or an educational permit,” she said. “Sometimes there are violation issues. Navigating that with the Attorney General’s office.”.

According to the article, Utah may be at the forefront of a movement to lower legal blood alcohol levels as it moves from .08 percent to .05 percent.  A significant dip in DUI's has even been attributed to many thinking that the legislation had already gone into effect.  Instead of splitting a bottle of wine, many are choosing to have a glass each instead.  

Once small legislative victory for bars and restaurants allows them to sell alcohol at a slightly earlier hour on weekends and holidays, and beer can be sold an hour later.  Lenart also commented on liquor laws designed for strip clubs which hounded Utah's own Brewvies establishment for allowing patrons to drink while watching an R-rated movie.  Brewvies was frustrated when it wished to show the acclaimed movie Deadpool but was stymied by Utah laws aimed at strip clubs to prohibit the sale of nudity in combination with alcohol.
