JUSTICE ROBERT E. GORDON delivered the opinion of the court:
Plaintiffs Boom Town Saloon, Inc., and Eugene Perry, Boom Town's president, appeal
the order of the circuit court of Cook County affirming the decision of the Local Liquor Control
Commissioner (LLCC). The LLCC revoked Boom Town's liquor license for allegedly
committing acts of gambling. On appeal, plaintiffs claim that the LLCC’s findings of gambling
were against the manifest weight of the evidence. We agree, and therefore reverse.
