Camden Brewery ‘Trial’ Date Is Set

Camden Courier-Post – August 8, 1933

Hearing on Revocation of Permit Starts in Post Office Building Aug. 21

Hearing in the revocation of permit proceedings against the Camden County Cereal Beverage Company will be held in the post office building here August 21.

That was announced yesterday by Leo A. Crossen, recently appointed supervisor of industrial alcohol permits or this district.

Crossen said there is a possibility, however, that the place of the hearing may be changed to the federal building in Philadelphia. Notice of the hearing has been sent to officials of the brewery and counsel, Crossen said.

The hearer has not been selected, Crossen said, but Norman J. Morrison, ace prosecutor in Attorney General Homer S. Cummings’ staff, will present the case for the government.

Meanwhile yesterday it was an­nounced that the Harrison Beverage Company had lost its appeal to have set aside the order revoking its permit.

A special federal board of review which last week heard “new evidence” offered by the brewery, and reviewed testimony given at the orig­inal citation hearing, recommended that the permit revocation stand.

Brewery counsel has 10 days in which to file an appeal with Dr. James T. Doran, commissioner of industrial alcohol. During these 10 days the brewery may operate. If Dr. Doran upholds the board’s de­cision, however, the brewery will be ordered closed.

Harold Simandl, former Newark police judge and attorney for the brewery, said he would carry an appeal to the highest courts if Dr. Doran ruled against him.
