I saw that earlier and was debating on if I should post it, it is sad but from the little info we have (I know more will come out and I want it too) I do not think the stadium had anything to do with it except serving too much alcohol (or alcohol to an intoxicated person if he drank before the game).

if he got drunk at the game on stadium property, they will be sued for millions, and even if he didn't they'll probably be sued and settle out of court

most states' dram shop acts have limits of around $50,000 or so.

It's a shame the article has to reference the ejection, as though that played a part in this kid's death. It's kind of like the Bears fan that got murdered while in Jacksonville. That explained what some guy from the Chicago area was doing there, but it ultimately had nothing to do with why he was murdered. Makes for an easy headline, though, I guess.

And you've just identified what is wrong with America. Even though we've become a pro choice society in just about every regard, we still have the ability to hold OTHERS accountable when we make a bad choice. So the kid chooses to get drunk but somehow the stadium will be held accountable?

When a highly intoxicated person ends up dead shortly after an incident that gets them ejected from somewhere, their demise is usually related to the incident. Even he was robbed at gun point and killed (strictly hypothetical at this point), one could still look at the series of events prior to and come to the conclusion that a sober man watching 4 quarters of football would have been much safer than a drunk man being kicked out early and being alone without his friends. It was his bad decisions that led him into a risky situation. That doesn't justify any action that may have killed him but each one of us has the ability to put ourselves on the brink of death any day of the week but we are wise enough to choose not to.

Depending on each state's interpretation, it's basically a hospitality law put in place for individuals who are involved in an alcohol-related injury or accident that can go back and hold the server liable/responsible for their predicament. There's obviously a lot of grey area that has to be determined. For example, was the individual visibly intoxicated coming into the stadium, and if so, did the staff continue to serve him? If they did, then they could possibly be on the hook for being responsible. But like I said before, it really depends on how each state's Dram Shop Act is set-up.
