Dallas restaurant fights liquor license suspension by TABC

One of the Dallas restaurants that recently had its liquor license suspended for failing to follow health guidelines is fighting the suspension.

Attorneys for XOXO Dining Room argue that the TABC’s emergency suspension order was an overstep and "a charade.” They are asking a judge to issue a temporary restraining order to put the license suspension on hold while it takes legal action.

The attorneys assert the suspension stemmed from a single person not wearing a mask and that the restaurant had been found to be in compliance multiple times by the Dallas fire marshal just days before the alleged TABC infraction.

The business is seeking monetary damages stemming from the loss of business.

The TABC has suspended the licenses of dozens of restaurants and bars for violating reopening restrictions.
