President-Elect of Pennsylvania AAJ: Remain Tough on Dram Shop Law

In an op-ed in the Legal Intelligencer (1/20) Kevin R. Marciano, president-elect of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice wrote that the people who are the fault of drunk driving related accidents and fatalities are “people who hold parties without watching for people who stumble out of their homes, the drunk drivers themselves and bar owners and their tenders who serve people who are obviously drunk or even possibly younger than 21.” He adds, “In the midst of the past season, attorneys Timothy Gilsbach and Erin Gilsbach wrote an article in this newspaper advocating that bar owners get an extra special holiday gift that would relieve them of responsibility for serving people who are visibly intoxicated (‘Re-evaluating First-Party Liability Under Pa.’s Dram Shop Law,’ Dec. 31, 2008).” Concluding, Marciano said, “We know that we must keep every weapon in the arsenal to encourage bar owners to do their job: regulating the way their dangerous product is served.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
