U.S. Supreme Court

Ma-King Products Co. v. Blair, 271 U.S. 479 (1926)

Ma-King Products Company v. Blair

No. 333

Argued May 7, 1926

Decided June 1, 1926

271 U.S. 479


1. Under the Prohibition Act, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue may refuse to grant a permit to deal in liquor for nonbeverage purposes when, in the exercise of a sound discretion, he determines that the applicant is not a fit person to be trusted with the privilege. P. 271 U. S. 481.

2. In a suit in equity under the Prohibition Act to review a decision of the Commissioner refusing such an application, the court does not exercise the administrative function of determining whether the permit should be granted, but merely determines whether, upon the facts and law, the action of the Commissioner is based upon an error of law, or is wholly unsupported by the evidence, or clearly arbitrary or capricious. P. 271 U. S. 482.

3 F.2d 936 affirmed.

Appeal from a decree of the circuit court of appeals which affirmed a decree of the district court dismissing a bill in a suit against the Commissioner of Internal Revenue to require him to issue to the plaintiff a permit to operate a plant for denaturing alcohol.
