Lawsuit seeks to toss Arkansas alcohol proposal


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A lawsuit has been filed asking the Arkansas Supreme Court to toss from the November ballot a proposal that would legalize alcohol sales in all of Arkansas' 75 counties.

The lawsuit filed late Friday afternoon on behalf of Citizens for Local Rights argues that the original submission of signatures on July 7 failed to meet a July 4 deadline to be submitted at least four months before the Nov. 4 election and that the ballot title is insufficient.

David Couch, organizer of the group sponsoring the proposal said July 4, a Friday, was a holiday, followed by the weekend. He said that Arkansas has allowed submissions to be made on the first business day following a holiday or a weekend.
