JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A hearing on a Vicksburg restaurant owner’s challenge to a new rule that forces him and three other city businesses to cut off alcohol sales at 2 a.m. will be rescheduled.

Meanwhile, Mayor George Flaggs told The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1xYpMSn) that the 2 a.m. last call requirement will be enforced by a police.

A brief hearing was held Tuesday in Hinds County Chancery Court. Chancellor Patricia Wise says she will reschedule the hearing to give more time for both sides to call witnesses. No new hearing date has been announced.

The lawsuit came about four weeks after the Department of Revenue on Dec. 19 restricted alcohol sales at four businesses in the city, cutting off alcohol sales at 2 a.m. at the city’s request.
