A Sixth District judge has granted a downtown bar owner's request for judicial review on a case involving alcohol served to an underage patron in January 2009, according to the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division docket.

Bo-James, 118 E. Washington St., received a 30-day liquor-license suspension and $1,500 fine after the bar was charged for providing alcohol to an underage person on Jan. 30, 2009.

The bar's owner, Leah Cohen, had appealed the charge because she said she believed Iowa City police's use of hired underage patrons, who snuck past the doorman, constituted entrapment.

The matter has been returned to the agency for dismissal of the complaint, according to the docket.
