Decision Date: 1989
Synopsis: Petitioner applied for renewal of a casino employee license and issuance of a casino key employee license. The Division of Gaming Enforcement opposed both, contending that petitioner lacked the good character, honesty and integrity as well as the financial stability, integrity and responsibility required by the Casino Control Act. The matter was transmitted to the Office of Administrative Law for a hearing. The administrative law judge found that petitioner had demon- strated sufficient good character, honesty and integrity for lieensure in both categories, but as to the financial criteria, he had established his qualification only with respect to his application for renewal of his casino employee license. The judge concluded that petitioner's efforts to satisfy his debts and other financial difficulties, however commendable, were too recent to demonstrate financial qualification for casino key employee licensure. He therefore recommended that the casino employee license be renewed but the casino key employee license application be denied. Upon review of this initial decision, the Commission determined that the criteria for financial qualification under N.J.S..4. $: 12-89(b)1 are to be applied consistently to both groups of employee licenses. Noting that the only question presented was whether petitioner pos- sessed current and prospective financial stability, the Commission found that the petitioner had presented clear and convincing evidence of same and thus both applications were granted.
