In re Louis K. Lefkowitz v. Fuchs Bros. Sales Corp.
Citation: 2 ELR 20368
No. No. 41480/71, 3 ERC 1872/(N.Y. Sup. Ct., 01/27/1972)
Importer of men's shoes made of alligator, caiman or crocodile skins enjoined under New York state law (Agriculture and Markets Law § 385-a) from further offering such shoes for sale. Although importer does not stock or warehouse such shoes in New York, its New York operation serves as the moving force in bringing the manufacturer and the retailer together, from which importer derives a profit. Hence, its operation constitutes offering such shoes for sale despite no direct handling.
