Concessionaire must pay $75M to victims of drunk driver

Jury rules Philadelphia- based Aramark responsible for young victim of a driver it served alcohol

(1/20/2005) - Bloomberg News reports that a jury in Hackensack on Wednesday ruled that Aramark Corp., the Philadelphia-based operator of sports concession stands, must pay $75 million in punitive damages for serving beer to a drunken football fan whose car crash crippled a toddler.

According to the article, jurors ruled the company "willfully and wantonly" disregarded safety in serving Daniel Lanzaro at a New York Giants football game in 1999. After leaving Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., Lanzaro got into an accident that left Antonia Verni, now 7, a quadriplegic. Jurors on Monday had ruled that Aramark and Lanzaro owed more than $30 million each in compensatory damages, the article reports.
