Paul Cambria represents Collin Miller, who says he merely wants to patronize Chippewa Entertainment district spots, not drink alcohol. "His argument is, as an adult he can die for his country, he can elect the president, but the city wants to curtail where he can move freely as an adult in a lawful purpose," explains Cambria.
Part of the argument is there are already laws in place regulating age and admission. "The State Liquor already deals with sale of alcohol to people under 21 with punishment. 18 and over can work there, but people under 18 can't handle liquor. It's not the business of a municipality to interfere with the laws of the state," says Cambria.
Cambria says the law requires a strict scrutiny test where the city has to justify a law like commingling and the city can't.The hearing was held Wednesday morning.
