Premier-Pabst Sales Co. v. Grosscup, 298 U.S. 226 (1936)

Premier-Pabst Sales Co. v. Grosscup

No. 745

Argued April 27, 1936

Decided May 18, 1936

298 U.S. 226


1. One who would attack a state statute as obnoxious to the Federal Constitution must show that the alleged unconstitutional feature injures him. P. 298 U. S. 227.

2. The question whether a Pennsylvania law licensing the sale of beer in that State discriminates unconstitutionally against those who sell beer imported from without by requiring of them a higher license fee and a bond of higher penal sum than are required for sale of beer made locally, held a question that could not be raised by a corporation which was disqualified to sell any beer in the State because its officers, directors, and a majority of its shareholders were not local residents, as required by the state law. P. 298 U. S. 227.

3. A license to sell beer in a State may be revoked by the State. P 298 U. S. 228.

12 F.Supp. 970 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the three-judge District Court dismissing a bill to enjoin enforcement of a state law regulating the sale of beer.
