PITTSBURGH — The parents of a man who was killed by a drunk driver are suing LADA Inc., which does business as Brookline Pub, alleging that the pub sold liquor to an intoxicated person.
Mary Beth and Michael Conroy filed a complaint May 19 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs' son, Sean Conroy, died after being hit by an intoxicated driver who was allegedly driving at a high rate of speed on Feb, 9, 2014.
The Conroys claim the pub was negligent in serving alcohol to an individual who was visibly intoxicated. The plaintiffs also allege that the pub failed to instruct its staff to refuse to sell liquor to a visibly intoxicated person.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant for an amount in excess of $35,000, plus interest and costs. They are represented by William D. Clifford of Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote PC in Pittsburgh and Sean J. Carmody of Carmody & Ging LLC in Pittsburgh.
