A local bar is set to have its liquor license revoked May 20 through June 19, according to online documents from the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division.

The 30-day suspension is the result of a series of lawsuits that started January 2009, when Bo-James, 118 E. Washington St., was accused of selling alcohol to a minor.

Owner Leah Cohen appealed the charge in 2011 because she thought the situation constituted entrapment — official acts causing an individual to commit an act they might otherwise not.

Bo-James was allowed to submit dates that would best work for its license suspension. Cohen said the date picked would be best because it is after classes end.

She said the bar/restaurant will be allowed to stay open for food.
