Matter of House of Seagram v. State Liq. Auth., Concur: Chief Judge Fuld and Judges Burke, Scileppi, Bergan, Breitel and Jasen.

 In each of the above-entitled proceedings: The court necessarily passed upon the contention of petitioners-appellants that the imposition of a fee for the issuance of a brand label use permit to sell alcoholic beverages, insofar as it covers liquors which are imported from without the State for sale within its borders, constitutes a tax or duty of "imports" proscribed by the Import-Export Clause -- article I, section 10 -- of the United States Constitution and, as indicated by its affirmance "on the opinion of the Appellate Division in Matter of House of Seagram v. State Liq. Auth. (30 A.D.2d 380)", found the contention without merit.

Disposition

In the first above-entitled proceeding: Order affirmed, with costs, on the opinion at the Appellate Division.

In the second, third and fourth above-entitled proceedings: Order affirmed, with costs, on the opinion of the Appellate Division in Matter of House of Seagram v. State Liq. Auth. (30 A.D.2d 380).
