If you're living in New York, Michigan or any other state with laws on the books preventing you from ordering wine online, it's time to log on and order a bottle of your favorite wine, as the Supreme Court has shot down those protectionist laws. It's about time. This case has been going on forever. Other, similar cases include the blocking of online ordering of contact lenses and other products -- but it seems like those laws should also be struck down following this ruling. Update: Excellent clarifications in the comments, pointing out that this ruling still allows states to ban all shipments of wine by mail. The only thing the ruling bans is if a state allows shipments within the state, but not from outside the state.
