This man needs to grow up and take responsibility for his own actions and decisions. He chose to drink. He chose to be an idiot. He is 28 years old, not a child. This is just a case of a lazy dirtball trying to get some unearned money. If you cant handle your liquor then dont drink and if you decide to drink anyway then you made that choice and must live with the consequences.

Wow what an idiot. If he wins this frivolous lawsuit then the owner of the car that hit him should sue him for all his winnings for her pain and distress from running over his dumb ass.

More than one lawsuit has been won and charges have been filed over bartenders serving patrons who are beyond drunk. He is only following precedent. LOL

Wouldn't the fault depend on where the victim was, like in a crosswalk or jaywalking?

I have issue with that in general.

If one is dumb enough to put themselves in front of 2 tons of moving glass and steel, they deserve the result. We need to get very serious in this country. Roadways are for vehicles, walkways are for pedestrians. The only claim a hit pedestrian should ever have is if they were in a crosswalk with the walk light on.

If one chooses to cross or be in a road at any other point, they should be held solely responsible.

I don't get that one either.

As much as I favor progress, I think we need to have an 17th century view of 'torts'

In a free market society a barmaid should be allowed to sell as much alcohol as a customer can pay for. The only thing the barmaid should be held accountable for is keeping the steins filled and the bar wiped off.

Just another bum looking for a free ride. He should have his face bashed in with a rock

Would it have helped the idiot, if the label said "4 crazy" instead?
