Miller spars with Calif. alcohol regulator

Published on .

Miller Brewing Co. on Dec. 18 Friday will challenge a restraining order suspending the brewer's national Super Bowl sweepstakes in California. The Superior Court of Los Angeles issued the order in early December, agreeing with the California Department of Alcohol Beverage Control that the sweepstakes violated state rules governing promos tied to alcoholic beverages. In a court hearing slated for Dec. 18, Miller plans to argue the regulator is acting arbitrarily and not following agency procedures.
