SUMMARY: 10/20/01 - Plff Harvey, male age 27. Plff Hendren, female age 25. Plffs were driving on SR 900 in Issaquah, Washington when their vehicle was struck head-on by Def. Torok, an intoxicated motorist. Def. Torok was an employee of Def. Tyrol Restaurant which is located at 85th and 5th Avenue NE at the north end of Seattle, Washington. Def. Torok worked and then attended a Hungarian party at Def. Tyrol Restaurant the evening of the accident.

8 Discovery ultimately revealed that Def. Tyrol's manager, Karoy Rideg, and most of the Def. restaurant's employees working at the party were drinking on the job in violation of Washington State liquor laws. Many of Def. Tyrol's employees, including Def. Torok, drank straight shots of Jagermeister. According to one (1) witness, Def. Torok drank 6-7 shots while working. According to witnesses, after getting off work at approximately 8:30 p.m., Def. Torok joined the party and continued to drink both additional Jagermeister as well as coca-cola mixed with wine. Def. Torok left the bar at the Def. restaurant at approximately 10:45 p.m. after getting into an altercation with her married boyfriend, Def. Miklai. Witnesses described Def. Torok as staggering, slurring her words and having difficulty walking in the hour prior to leaving the Def. restaurant. Def. Torok struck a car in Def. Tyrol's parking lot while leaving. A 14-minute 911 call by a concerned motorist described erratic driving on I-90 and off of the Front Street exit right up to the time Def. Torok crossed the centerline and hit Plffs' vehicle head-on. Def. Torok died in the crash; her BAC was.22. Def. Tyrol denied any liability, denied Def. Torok was intoxicated, contended that Def. Torok had nothing to drink at the Def. restaurant and that she left the premises shortly after getting off work, never to return. After Def. Torok's death, a meeting was held at Def. Tyrol by restaurant manager Rideg and Def. Miklai (who never worked at the Def. restaurant) at which it was insinuated that employees should say nothing about what occurred on the evening of the accident.

Lisa Gillihan was employed as a bartender at Delaney's, and she and her husband were regulars at the establishment. Plffs contended that at 5:00 p.m., Lisa Gillihan called her daughter, Plff Amber, from Delaney's and requested a ride home due to her and her husband's intoxication. Amber arrived at Delaney's but her obviously intoxicated parents were not ready to leave. After eating, Amber told her parents she would return to pick them up at 11:00 p.m. On her way out of the bar, she instructed the bartender not to let her parents drive due to their intoxicated state. At 10:45 p.m., minutes before Amber was to pick them up, Lisa and Wayne Gillihan were allowed to leave the establishment on their own, despite having been drinking for approximately 13 hours. While driving west on SR 101 outside Port Angeles, Lisa Gillihan (.17 blood alcohol) lost control of the Gillihan van, crossed the centerline, and struck an embankment. Wayne Gillihan was killed; Lisa seriously injured. Amber came upon the accident scene on her way back to Delaney's to pick up her

15 parents. Amber and Stephanie brought individual claims against their mother, as well as against Delaney's under dram shop principles. Plff's expert, Hlastala, calculated that Lisa Gillihan had consumed the equivalent of ounce beers on the day/ evening in question, and that she would have showed obvious signs of intoxication.

The driver, Shawn Moore, and Parnell had spent the seven hours before the crash at a local bar. Parnell sue Peak Oilfield Co. for vicarious liability, claiming that one of its employees hit the moose on his way to work and therefore owed other motorists a duty of care for failing to take action to remove the moose carcass. A witness for Peak said that she saw the moose wandering in the middle of the road and that it was hit by a car traveling in the opposite direction of the Peak truck.

16 The judge barred the defense from telling the jury that Moore pleaded no contest to a drunken driving charge related to the accident. Claim: Auto accident Defense: The Peak employee created no hazard, and the company owed no duty of care to other motorists. < DIV CLASS="c5"> Plaintiff Experts: Francis Gallela, economics, Anchorage, Alaska; Francine Pulver, M.D., primary care, Anchorage; Michael Hlastala, alcohol and drugs, Edmonds, Wash.; Charles Lewis, accident reconstruction, Issaquach, Wash.; Helen Woodward, vocational rehabilitation, Lakewood, Colo.; Arthur Ginsburg, Ph.D., personal vision, San Ramon, Calif.
