Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control v. Maynards, Inc.

7-18-07 (A-120-05)

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, N.J.S.A. 33:1-1 to – 97,
imposes strict liability on a licensee for a violation
of the Act’s provisions by the licensee’s employees. The
measure of punishment is determined by considering all relevant
facts, including the licensee’s knowledge, efforts taken to
prevent violations, and character and reputation; whether
excessive hardship would result; and whether repeated violations
were the direct product of governmental action.
