Handling empty sub-menus with CSS

I had this question after viewing The Menu is good, but needs a couple of Tweaks.

The DIV structure is generated via reading a JSON file and programmatically building the DIVs with whatever nesting the JSON file specifies.  On occasion,  the JSON file can only have a top level link and the sub menu is empty.  The generated structure works but displays an empty node.

Is there any way to hide empty sub-menus?  

I will attach a picture demonstrating the issue and the section of the DIV structure that produces it.

Empty sub menu item
Here is the associated html fragment which produces it

      <div class="item">
        <a href="http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp">99-JavaScript Tutorial</a>
        <div class="sub-menu">
          <div class="col_1 sub-menu-item">
          </div><!-- Close Col Div  -->
        </div>
      </div>

I would rather put logic in not to render it in the first place.
