Drunk Driving Case Moved to Court of Appeals

A 10-year-old girl was killed in a car when an intoxicated driver crashed into them. The intoxicated driver was found to have purchased 17 beers and 3 shots at a restaurant before getting behind the wheel and driving up to 98mph. The attorney for the victim’s family says the restaurant is responsible for serving the drunk driver. In the past, courts have not ruled in favor of those trying to sue businesses who served patrons who went on to cause injury or death. Causation laws in Maryland have changed over time, however. The case was dismissed, but they will take the case to the Court of Appeals, according to news reports.
