Definitions of ORIGINAL PACKAGE
Sort: Oldest first
In 1890 the Supreme Court of the United States, in the case of Leisy & Co. vs. Hardin, held that the plaintiffs, brewers in Illinois, had the right to bring beer into Iowa and sell it in the original packages, regardless of the Iowa prohibitory law. Their decision rested on the right of Congress to have exclusive control of interstate commerce. Congress immediately passed an act giving the State control of the liquors so imported, though in the original packages.
