Case Notes


  Where a public hearing pertaining to the issuance of a liquor license was statutorily required under §281-57 and this section, and petitioner's legal rights, duties, and privileges were determined based on the public hearing regarding the decision to grant or deny a liquor license to petitioner, the public hearing was a "contested case" hearing governed by chapter 91; thus, (1) petitioner was entitled to judicial review under §91-14, (2) §91-11 applied to proceedings on petitioner's application for liquor license, and (3) the liquor commission did not comply with §91-11.  118 H. 320, 189 P.3d 432.
