Sixth Circuit Says TWG Cannot Terminate Ohio Distributors

An Ohio district court was not wrong in granting a preliminary injunction that stops The Wine Group (TWG) from terminating its distributor agreements with Tri-County Wholesale Distributors and Iron City Distributing, ruled the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday. This is the second franchise lawsuit regarding TWG's consolidation attempts in Ohio and puts it in accordance with the Fifth Circuit. You may recall the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Ohio's Esber Beverage in March (Wine Group, Inc. v. Esber Beverage Company) on the grounds that TWG attempted to unlawfully terminate their distribution agreement.
