Corruption accusation against NH Liquor Commission thrown out by judge

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - A New Hampshire judge has dismissed a Pennsylvania liquor distributor's suit alleging corruption in the state Liquor Commission's awarding of a 20-year, $200 million warehousing contract.

XTL-NH was the second highest bidder for the contract, which was given to Ohio-based Exel Inc. in 2013.

Judge Richard McNamara of the Merrimack County Superior Court rejected XTL's suit, calling it "nothing more than the grousing of a disappointed bidder."

The Concord Monitor reports that in 2015, the Liquor Commission reached a $2.5 million settlement with another bidder, Law Warehouses of Nashua.
