    Trial begins in case of Roxbury bar ejecting drunk man before he was fatally struck by cars | NJ.com

    Always someone else's fault...

    It is the man's fault, but the bar should have never served him that much. For in most state there is laws about over serving.
    The same thing happened here with a women, she was over served, the bar let her leave, and she ended up being dragged by a car for a mile. It maybe the man's fault, but it called looking out for your fellow man.

    If an adult chooses to drink himself into a stupor, the only person responsible for the consequences is said adult.

    I would say that the bar should have called the police to get him, not a cab. Truth is, we don't know how much the bartender poured for the guy, he may have stumbled in there already loaded. However, putting anyone out a door when they can barely walk, not a good idea.

    And not the responsibility of the bartender.

    I wouldn't want the cops playing taxi when they could be ticketing speeders.

    Actually it is, for one it is against the law to over serve. And if he was loaded when he go there, they should have never let him in.

    The bar tender also knows the laws of the state, and what will happen if they are caught over serving.

    Yawn.

    An adult is the only one responsible for his action.

    Laws demanding the business owners act like Mommy are beyond stupid.

    Doesn't matter if they are stupid, bartenders know not to over serve people. They also know what can happen if they do, and that they can be held responsible.
