Schieffelin & Co. v. Department of Liquor Control

In Schieffelin & Co. v Department of Liquor Control (194 Conn 165, A.2d 1191, 1199 [1984]) the severity of the impairment was more severe than that facing Miller in the instant case. In that case, the statute imposed a "just cause" requirement for termination of certain contractual relationships theretofore terminable at will, by reducing the durational period one holds a distributorship from 24 months to six months. Yet, the court (194 Conn. at 181-182, 479 A.2d at 1201) held "it was therefore reasonably foreseeable that the twenty-four month distributorship as a requirement for just cause termination would not remain static and, in all likelihood, would be reduced."
