WTF?

This really pisses me off:
NJ girl paralyzed in crash by Giants fan gets $26M

NEWARK, N.J. – A stadium vendor has settled a lawsuit by the family of a girl paralyzed in a car accident caused by a drunken New York Giants fan for $26 million.

The amount of the settlement had been sealed until Wednesday, when a state appellate court overturned a lower court's decision to keep the settlement private.

Antonia Verni, 11, and her mother, Fazila, sought to keep the settlement private because of concerns over how the girl's estranged father handled funds from earlier settlements with other defendants.

The family sued Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp., Giants Stadium's concessionaire, claiming that employees continued to serve beer to Daniel Lanzaro of Cresskill even though he was visibly intoxicated.
[...]
The vendor gets sued because of the stupidity of the patron? Good gawd-a-mighty.

Yes, I understand he was 'visibly intoxicated'. He shouldn't have been served. But the vendor is no babysitter either. You've heard my opinion enough on this here blog to know how I feel about people suing vendors, manufacturers, whoever, because of the stupidity of an individual who don't take responsibility for their own actions. And it's usually because the people bringing charges want a payout and know that they can't get it from the individual.

Take a look at the bolded paragraph again. This ain't their first rodeo. They've done this shit before. They knew who held the purse strings.

CHA-CHING!!! assholes.
