Dram Shop Petition
Can I make a claim for liability on a "host" of a Super Bowl party? The driver went to the party, then to a bar, having several drinks at each before crashing into my client.
Answer: I think there is no liability for the social host. See: McGee v. Alexander, 2001 OK 78, 37 P.3d 78: Social host liability rejected as to hospital throwing a business-related party at a country club. You might get outside this rule if the drinking driver is a minor.
