Michael Phelps Recent DUI Arrest Leads to Dram Shop Rule Considerations in Maryland

Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) October 15, 2014

The Baltimore Sun recently reported that “Michael Phelps DUI arrest following an eight hour period of drinking and gambling at Baltimores Horseshoe Casino raised concerns at the citys liquor board.” The casino is the only establishment in the city with a 24-hour a day liquor license. The liquor board is investigating whether servers should have continued serving alcohol to Phelps. There is a rule in place by the liquor board to prevent over-service. This rule prohibits all bars in the city from selling alcohol to someone who is under the influence, disorderly or known to be a habitual drunkard. Maryland state law also prohibits vendors with a liquor license from selling or providing alcohol to anyone under 21 or someone visibly under the influence of any alcoholic beverage.

Interestingly, Maryland is one of eight states in which bars cannot be held liable for serving intoxicated patrons. This is otherwise known as the dram shop law. The law varies in the states that have it, but generally, a bar or similar establishment can be held liable for death or injury to third parties caused by selling alcohol to visibly intoxicated persons or minors.

The Court of Appeals of Maryland, in Warr v. JMGM Group, LLC, 433 Md. 170 (2013), recently declined to change the common law to impose civil liability on an establishment that serves a visibly intoxicated patron, who then drives drunk, and causes an injury or death. The Court believes that this is a matter of public policy that is best left to Marylands General Assembly. Three bills (Senate Bill 739, House Bill 1120, and House Bill 1000) proposing dram shop liability have been introduced in the General Assembly since 2002, but none have even come close to passing.

Maryland has remained steadfast in the notion that there should be no third party liability for the actions of drunk drivers and the harm they cause. Marylands Court of Appeals recently refused to make changes to Marylands common law in a case where a bar patron was served seventeen beers and four shots and drove his car into another car killing a 10-year old girl. The results of this case prove the unlikeliness of things changing any time soon. If there was a case to hold a bar liable for a third party injury, this would have been it.

Maryland already has laws in place to prohibit over serving by restaurants and bars. According to Mr. Portner, “While it does seem appropriate and fair to implement a dram shop rule to also hold an establishment liable for third party injuries caused by over serving a patron, it does not seem fair to hold a liquor store liable for the same injuries.” He continues, “A liquor store, unlike a bar or restaurant, has no control over how much alcohol is consumed, what alcohol is consumed, or where it is consumed.” However, it does seem fair to implement a dram shop rule for injuries caused by serving or over serving a minor. Mr. Portner believes that it is the restaurants, bars, or liquor stores fault for serving a minor alcohol and they should be held responsible for any injuries the minor causes to a third party.

Gerard & Associates Announce Former Las Vegas Cay Club Executives Indicted in Connection with Alleged $300 million Ponzi Scheme Involving Sales of Condominium Hotel Units

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) October 10, 2014

On September 16, 2014, the U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of Florida, indicted Fred Davis Clark (aka Dave Clark) and Cristal R. Clark (aka Cristal Coleman), who according to Court documents were former principles of the now defunct Cay Clubs Resorts International. The Indictment brings forth charges of conspiracy and multiple counts of bank fraud in connection with an alleged $ 300 million Ponzi scheme (Case No. 13-10034-CR-JEM). A copy of the indictment can be read by clicking here.

According to the Indictment, the charges against Dave Clark and Cristal Coleman arise from their operation of Cay Clubs, a network of luxury condominium resorts with locations throughout the country, including several in Florida and one location in Las Vegas. The alleged Cay Clubs scheme involved promises to investors that Cay Club developers would refurbish and upgrade existing condominium complexes into luxurious condominium resorts with various upscale amenities.

According to Court documents, approximately 1,400 investors were allegedly fleeced out of several hundred million dollars as the money earmarked for improvements was allegedly stolen by Clark, Coleman and other known and unknown co-conspirators. According to Court documents, the Las Vegas location was known as Las Vegas Cay Club, situated across the street from the Rio Hotel & Casino at 4200 South Valley View Boulevard (the location is now known as Desert Tides).

The indictments are only accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
