The lawyer who advanced Second Amendment gun rights in his U.S. Supreme Court debut is now focusing his attention on beer and the First Amendment.
A federal lawsuit filed by lawyer Alan Gura claims Michigan liquor regulators violated the First Amendment when they refused a license for Raging Bitch beer, made by the Flying Dog Brewery, the Washington Business Journal reports.
The U.S. Supreme Court agreed with Gura in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own a gun.
