Where (1) the plaintiffs' minor decedent, while a guest at a private party held at the defendant country club, became intoxicated by consuming drinks purchased by other guests at the defendant's bar and was later killed by a car when she walked onto a highway, (2) a jury returned a verdict in the plaintiffs' favor on a negligence claim against the defendant and (3) the trial judge granted the defendant's motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict, we conclude that it was error for the trial judge to enter judgment for the defendant notwithstanding the verdict, as the evidence was sufficient to support the jury's determination that the defendant breached its duty to refrain from making alcohol available to the deceased minor.

Arthur F. Licata

Arthur F. Licata became interested in the "international arena" when he was a college student. He has since been able to achieve what so many people find difficult to do: turn an avocation into a profession. As an international business attorney with ties in Estonia and the Czech Republic, Licata has the unique opportunity to see not only a part of the world going through an historical transition but also how that reflects upon this country. President Clinton invited Licata to the White House Conference on Trade and Investment in Central and Eastern Europe on Jan. 12 and 13. Licata spoke to Lawyers Weekly's Dale Seamans about that conference and the business of doing business in that part of the world.
