BUFFALO, NY - Last April, the Buffalo Common Council passed a law banning anyone under 21 from going into bars, taverns and clubs on Chippewa ... unless a special event permit was issued by the city.

Two months ago the bars and clubs filed a lawsuit against officials at City Hall. Lawyers for the city say it has the right to regulate who can go into Chippewa bars while the bars and clubs say the law hurts their businesses financially.

Paul Cambria, the attorney who filed the lawsuit against the city's commingling law, says a ruling could come within the next week.

He represents the bars and one teenager in the lawsuit. The ruling will come from a State Supreme Court judge.
