#3 Raj was a server at a bar. A customer ordered another fat tire beer. Raj knew he had
served the customer several beers already. What factors should Raj consider in
determining whether or not to serve the customer another drink?
Raj should consider the following factors:
The patron's level of intoxication: If the patron is visibly intoxicated, it is illegal to serve
them more alcohol.
The patron's behavior: If the patron is becoming loud, aggressive, or disruptive, it may be
an indication that they have had too much to drink.
The amount of alcohol the patron has already consumed: If the patron has already had
several drinks, it may be time to cut them off.
The amount of time the patron has been at the bar: If the patron has been drinking for an
extended period, it may be time to cut them off to prevent further intoxication.
The bar's policies and procedures: The bar may have specific guidelines for serving
alcohol to patrons, and Raj should follow these guidelines to ensure compliance with the
law and reduce the risk of liability.
#2 A bartender at the Rascal Café, which is located in a state with a drinking age of 21 and
a dram shop act, served a female who was 19 years old. She had only one drink. Due to the
effects of the alcohol, she failed to stop at a red light and hit a pedestrian who was crossing
the street. Is the Rascal Café liable to the pedestrian for the injuries? Why or why not?
