Bar Beer Pong, Injuries and Insurance
I guess the moral of the story is don’t play beer pong at a bar and try to cross a highway on foot. The bar and the bar’s insurance company are NOT going to pay for your injuries. Note to self take a cab after playing beer pong. Good to know!
NYC Judge Throws Out Beer Pong Lawsuit
A judge has thrown out a New Jersey man’s lawsuit against a Greenwich Village pub over injuries he suffered following a beer pong game.
The judge found Alan Berger voluntarily signed up for the beer-drinking game and couldn’t sue Wicked Willy.
The judge said Berger “consumed alcohol to the point of diminished capacity.” Court papers say Berger played the game for 3 1/2 hours in June 2009. He later was struck by a car while trying to cross a highway in Manalapan, N.J.
The New York Post says his lawyer will ask the judge to reconsider the ruling.
