Collins & Lacy Attorney Christian Stegmaier to present to S.C. Hospitality Association on New Rules with Alcohol Liability

[Columbia, S.C.] – If you serve alcohol, you won’t want to miss this seminar.

A recent Supreme Court ruling is going to put more pressure on businesses that sell alcohol. Bars, restaurants and convenience stores could face stiffer penalties for selling alcohol to someone who ends up injuring someone else.

This Supreme Court of South Carolina upheld a 2003 ruling that awarded $10 million to a man who sued a bar after one of its patrons ran into him on a Greenwood highway.

The decision also lifted the corporate veil, which makes the owner of the restaurant personally responsible for the verdict amount.

Join Collins & Lacy attorney Christian Stegmaier and the South Carolina Hospitality Association as professionals explain the importance and impact of the Supreme Court ruling and how it impacts your business.

The seminar is October 12, from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Clarion Hotel in Columbia. Click here to register online.
