Notes of Decisions

   Insurance of Licenses

   In determining whether to issue a license the Board has no authority or power to consider issues regarding partnership agreements not raised by the parties privy to the contract. Edwards v. State Board of Funeral Directors, 383 A.2d 564 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1978).

   Restricting the issuance of licenses to situations where substantial harm would be worked on the consumer if a license were not issued is contrary to the provisions of this section and is in conflict with the intent of the Legislature in authorizing the grant of licenses. Edwards v. State Board of Funeral Directors, 383 A.2d 564 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1978).
