Attorneys obtained summary judgment in a Dram Shop case
Attorneys obtained summary judgment in a Dram Shop case. After drinking all day and attending the insured's charity function, the decedent was killed later that night in an automobile accident. After his life-long friend failed to observe a stop sign, the decedent was thrown from the open-air bed of his classic pick-up truck. The decedent's estate claimed that the insured knowingly served the driver when he was visibly intoxicated and failed to provide a secure and safe environment at the charity function. After presenting the court with the deposition testimony of the decedent's seven friends, the Court granted summary judgment for the insured.
