Rhyner v. Madden, 188 N.J.Super. 544, 457 A.2d 1243 (Law Div. 1982)
Practice Areas: General Liability
Our office represented one of the taverns in this dram shop case in which several plaintiff’s alleged that the driver of the vehicle in which they were riding was served after a point in time at which he was visibly intoxicated. We asserted that the passengers comparative negligence for riding with the visibly intoxicated driver should go to the jury. The Appellate Division disagreed, stating that their comparative was not an issue where they were served after a point of visible intoxication also.
