Inside the MO Court’s Decision to hear Major Brands vs. Bacardi

You may recall that Missouri distributor Major Brands is involved in a few lawsuits with some of its main suppliers (i.e. Pernod, Diageo and Bacardi) pertaining primarily to the state's franchise laws (see WSD 04-24-2013 if this doesn't ring a bell).
