I feel sorry for the victim that was hit by the girl. She got off pretty damn easy and she was the person responsible. I have to agree with Brett that it was a sympathetic award as there sure seems to be a lot of inconsistancies in the stories. Seems kind of convienant for the girl to come up with the "oh yeah, they served me 10 drinks". Nothing but an atempt to shift focus from her personal responsibility to another party in an area that can't be substantiated, has deep pockets, and quite frankly probably has it's share of people in the area that would like to see them go under or finacially hurt. just my $.02

Utterly astonished. Small town politics at work. If that was in a real city the case would NEVER have gotten that far. I call BS on the cop, the girl and the verdict. Hopefully, on appeal, the REAL judges will toss that $hit in the trash.

As quoted from the club's attorney/OSO member, it's "a sympathy verdict." Read the article and you'll see that justice did not prevail in this case.

What a crock

Pain and suffering should never be reimbursed

Life is pain and suffering

Hell I have been married 4 times

You want to talk about pain and suffering some one should be paying me

Said that. Or a minor in this instance.

Get the right jury and lawyer in the room you can make anything make sense. Working with public companies just to ensure we follow rules. I get to hang out with a lot of lawyers and accountants. Also had orchards with migrant worker cabins that employee's use. Asked what would be the liability if our employee's living on company property, as our "guests" got drunk and hit someone. Hence my knowledge on how this could be argued. Every transaction that I do with a public company is vetted by our lawyer(s) and in today's environment even private companies should do the same!

Probably half because a lot of people have an animosity to strip clubs, and half because the guy was a cop. I think the girl should be paying for it, not the club.
Most states if your under age and have any alcohol in your system and drive can be a DUI. WA, "it is unlawful for a person under the age of 21 years who has a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.01 percent or greater, as measured by a preliminary alcohol screening test or other chemical test, to drive a vehicle."

The only real question is did she in fact work at Lollipops. If I make porn tapes or take pictures of naked women. Would I not have to keep proof that the model was of legal age at the time my porn was created? You would think the club would even if she was a contract dancer, have to do the same. Have it on file thats she is legal. So if she did work then they knew she was underage. Most states that is a crime to sell and serve minors alcohol. Lollipops if she had any alcohol in her system broke the law and that led to a person being injured. Loss of a limb, I would sue their butts off. Settle out of court for free private dances for life though!

It would serve no purpose......she did the criminal act but wasn't the one with deep pockets....so she gets a pass and everyone refocuses on the money trail..and really that's all our legal system is about anyway.

Kind of like the guy sentenced to 85 years for a boating accident.
