01-0827 State v. McGuire

The State of Wisconsin appeals from a trial court order dismissing its action against Scott McGuire. McGuire is the licensee for the service of alcoholic beverages at the Sports Page Bar & Grill. The State cited both McGuire and his employee for a violation of Wis. Stat. sec. 125.07(1)(a)2 for selling alcoholic beverages to a minor. The State argues that the trial court erred in its determination that sec. 125.07(1)(a)6 precludes it from making a determination that McGuire violated sec. 125.07(1)(a)2 because the employee of McGuire had already been convicted of a violation for the same sale.

We do not reach the merits of this appeal. McGuire has failed to file a respondent’s brief on appeal. Due to this failure, we summarily reverse the circuit court’s order as a sanction under Wis. Stat. Rule 809.83(2).2 In taking this action, we stress that we are not addressing the correctness of the trial court’s ruling.

This opinion will not be published.
