Notes of Decisions

   Administrative Law Judges

   An administrative law judge may suspend or revoke a liquor license for violations of the Liquor Code or these regulations. Because issuance of a liquor license was a prerequisite to the issuance of a Sunday Sales Permit, and such a permit only related to a licensee’s ability to sell liquor between certain hours on Sunday and Monday mornings, there was inherent in an administrative law judge’s power to suspend or revoke a liquor license the power to suspend or revoke a Sunday Sales Permit. Shenanigans of Lake Harmony, Inc. v. Liquor Control Board, 654 A.2d 166 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1995).

   As the liquor licensee furnished false information on its Sunday Sales Permit renewal application and failed to meet the minimum required sales ratios, the order imposing a fine and revocation of the permit was supported by substantial evidence. State Police v. Boots & Bonnet, Inc., 630 A.2d 541 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1993).

   A licensee must fill out an application to make Sunday sales and certify that sales of food and nonalcoholic beverages equals 40% of the food and alcoholic beverage sales. Falsifying information on the application resulted in a $400 fine and revocation of the Sunday sales permit. State Police v. Boots, 630 A.2d 541 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1993).

§ 11.174. Provisional Sunday sales permit.

 (a)  Sunday sales permits are personal and not subject to transfer. The Board may, upon receipt of the appropriate application and fee, grant and cause to be issued a provisional Sunday sales permit to a qualified licensee:

   (1)  To whom the Board has approved the issuance of a new license.

   (2)  To whom the Board has approved the transfer of an existing license.

   (3)  Whose primary license has been in safekeeping with the Board for a period of not less than 90 days.

 (b)  An application for a provisional Sunday sales permit shall be filed within 90 days of the grant of a new license, the transfer of an existing license or the release of a license from safekeeping, whichever applies. The provisional Sunday sales permit is valid for a period of 120 days from the date of issuance, exclusive of periods of safekeeping. After 90 days from the date of issuance, the licensee has the right to file an application for a Sunday sales permit under §  11.172 (relating to application for Sunday sales permit). The licensee will be required to pay an additional full fee in order to renew the provisional Sunday sales permit when the 120-day period extends into a new license year. If the licensee qualifies for a Sunday sales permit, the provisional Sunday sales permit fee submitted for the license year in question shall be applied in full. If the licensee fails to qualify for a Sunday sales permit, the fee submitted with the application for a provisional Sunday sales permit is forfeited.
