Dram Shop Case Settles for $7M - Old City Philadelphia

The estate of a young man beaten to death by three intoxicated individuals settled with the bars that served the man's attackers while visibly intoxicated for $7M. The estate argued that just prior to the fatal beating, the assailants had been drinking at the establishments where employees served the men despite their showing signs of visible intoxication. Kevin Kless, the victim, was a 23 year old pedestrian who evidence would have shown was simply walking along the streets of Philadelphia with his girlfriend and another friend when the assailants approached looking for trouble. Two of the attackers were underage at the time and all three assailants pleaded guilty to the criminal charges.
