On October 6th, 2008, the judgment in Siesta Village Markets LLC v. Granholm was stayed by agreement of the parties, to give the state time to appeal and, if the appeal is taken, to leave the current law in force for the duration of the appellate process. It seems almost certain the defendants will appeal.
That means the law in Michigan has not yet changed and, depending on the outcome on appeal, may not change as contemplated by the district court opinion. Reports that Wine.com will begin shipping in reliance on the original judgment appear premature.
