Liquor Nuisance Law and Legal Definition

Liquor nuisance means conducting business of intoxicating liquors as to constitute a material annoyance, inconvenience, discomfort, or hurt to an individual or the public. It also means the place of business selling intoxicating liquors as declared a nuisance by statute or ordinance.

One who maintains on his/her premises a liquor nuisance, whether s/he is the owner, lessee, tenant, or occupant of the premises in question, is the person against whom the decree of abatement is issued. [United States v. Lyons, 1 F. Supp. 564 (D.N.Y. 1932)]
