Attorney for Appellant: Thomas Mumgaard (Omaha City Attorney’s Office)
Attorney for Appellee: Michael L. Lazer and Kevin J. McCoy (Smith, Gardner, Slusky, Lazer, Phoren & Rogers, LLP) and Jon Bruning and Milissa Johnson-Wiles (Attorney General’s Office)
Civil Action: Appeal from the Administrative Procedures Act
Action Taken by Trial Court: The district court affirmed the Nebraska Liquor Commission’s issuance of a liquor license to the appellee C.A. Howell.
