Oklahoma's highest court is agreeing with a district judge who ruled that a new liquor law is unconstitutional.

Senate Bill 608 would have required top brands of wine and spirits to be sold at all Oklahoma alcohol wholesalers.

In August, a district judge ruled the state could let manufacturers choose who can distribute their products.

Now, Oklahoma's Supreme Court is upholding that ruling, deeming the law invalid.
