COLUMBUS - The 10th District Court of Appeals recently ruled that Ohio liquor agents are not required to have ""reasonable suspicion"" before entering licensed premises.The case stems from an event on March 9, 2000, when two agents entered the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 2156 in Northfield to conduct an administrative inspection of the D-5 premises.
