Petitioner Board revoked the license of respondent Attic Lounge after considering evidence that a Rhode Island judge, in related criminal proceedings, ruled was obtained in a search of the Lounge that violated the Fourth Amendment. This Court granted certiorari to consider whether the Fourth Amendment exclusionary rule applies in civil liquor license revocation proceedings.
Held: Because the Lounge has since gone out of business, the case is rendered moot.
Certiorari dismissed. Reported below: 463 A.2d 161.
