A New York Giant concessionaire was successfully sued for $105 Million dollars for selling beer to a man involved in an accident where a 2 yearold girl was paralized.

NEW YORK, Jan 20 (Reuters) - The family of a girl paralyzed in a car crash caused by a drunken football fan won $105 million in damages from the concessionaire that sold him beer, and the girl's father said on Thursday the case should have far-reaching effects.

Now they want the people who sell beer at football games to be responsible for recognizing when someone has has too much to drink? They also have no idea upon the customer leaving the stand who is actually going to consume that beer. Courts and lawyers will soon make it impossible for anyone to do anything where alchohol is involved. If they start making the sellers responsible for the drinkers actions we will be in a self imposed prohibition where the only place you will be able to drink is in your own home... that is if you can find someone to sell you the drink!

Humm only drinking in your home. sounds good to me .I dont want you out there on the road going past my home killing my kids or dogs or even my mail box for all that matters .
In case you already dont know it alcholol is responsible for over 40% of all accedents. and worse still when you run down someones kid you get off with a slap on the wrist.
If it was up to me the law would be get cought drunk wile driven just once and louse your licence for LIFE .get cought twice go to jail for ten years. accutly cause an accedent go to jail for 15 . Cause a death from an accedent be charged With murrder in the first degree .Because it IS murrder you know you cant drive well drunk but got in the car anway .
Ill tell you one other thing you probly think im right wing at this point but If God forbid a drunk runs your wife kid or other reltive watch how fast you come over to my way of thinking .

Three words to watch for in this case: "overturned on appeal."

Aramark had rules in place; the individual vendor broke those rules. Not much the company could do, at that point.

This is a tragic case, but put the blame where it's due: on the jerk who got wasted at the game and decided to drive himself home.
