Curfew reprieve extended for Oklahoma bars, restaurants

The Associated Press - January 2, 2021 11:42 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Bars and restaurants across Oklahoma will be able to stay open past Gov. Kevin Stitt’s ordered 11 p.m. curfew well into the new year while a lawsuit brought by a group of bar owners is litigated.

An Oklahoma County judge was expected to hear arguments in the case on Wednesday, but that hearing has been delayed until January 8th. Until then, a temporary restraining order issued earlier this month will remain in effect that prevents the state from enforcing the curfew.

District Judge Susan Stallings’ order technically applies only to the plaintiffs, but the state’s Alcoholic Beverage Laws Commission says that it won’t enforce the curfew while the order is in effect.
