The Supreme Court of New Jersey in the recent case of Rappaport v. Nichols' has announced a doctrine of common law liability of tavern keepers very much contra to the existing law as presently understood and applied by the vast majority of the courts of this country. This decision, if indicative of a trend, will serve to impose liability upon tavern keepers where previously it appears that none has existed in the absence of statute.
