----while I understand that the parents are saddened by their loss...it was going to happen to this young man sooner or later with drinking habits like his. Suing the limo company for not enforcing their own policies also seems justified. Hope some good comes of this tragedy-maybe the limo company should just take 21 and over for these "cruises"

People drink alcohol on a "booze cruise" around San Francisco. The law suit, no. The company, no. The idea, no. Pick the people up and drop them off at home and follow the web site rules, okay. Tragic as this may be it was a "bus" designed to move people from one place to another. Hookers and bars? I am to old for that sort of thing but it sounds like fun for everyone but the hookers. Bottom line is if you want your kids to live longer than you, you have to be there, even if just to drive them home after a "booze cruise". I have seen more than my share of dead "rich" kids. I can tell stories you do not want to know about.

The loss of a child is devastating, probably any family's worst nightmare. That said, why the need for someone else to shoulder the responsibility for for the poor judgment of the victim?
There always seems to be an ambulance-chasing sleaze bag lawyer out their hoping to make a quick buck on a family's grief.
It would be no great surprise to find that the lawyer solicited the family rather than the other way around.
People need to accept responsibility for their own actions, both good and bad, rather than scapegoating others.

pretty sad to lose your son to alcohol. Even worse to lose your dignity over it. Your son got drunk , with alcohol he provided himself with. Bad decision and tragic result. Totally the fault of the teen driving . Too bad he died , but at least didnt kill anyone else. He drank , he drove , he died. His fault. Period. Sorry to his parents for the loss.. not the limo s fault. Take responsibility for your actions.... and where were this kids friends when he got into his car to drive home?... maybe they should be sued too?
