A federal appeals court is set to consider the validity of a ruling striking down Kentucky's seven-decade old ban on selling wine and liquor at grocery stores, gas stations and other retailers.

A Court of Appeals has scheduled oral arguments for Tuesday in Cincinnati. The appeal was request by the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control Department.

Kroger officials say they're anxiously awaiting the decision, which may not be made until a later date.

Kroger officials say the hearing will be by phone with a panel of judges and attorneys.
