In a recent case our law firm was able to secure a $50,000.00 mediation settlement from a bar owner who over-served a woman who later struck our client as he walked home.  The bar took the position that they did not over-serve the driver…they claimed the driver never consumed any alcohol at the bar.  After 5 depositions we were confident we could prove them wrong.  Then the bar argued that our client walked into the roadway because he too was drunk.  We were able to show there was no evidence to support their theory that our client was in the roadway.  Dram shop cases have a cap which would have prevented our client from getting much more than we settled for.  A good day for our client.
