Attorney Jon Vasey Obtains Summary Judgment for Dram Shop Client in Iowa District Court

The Iowa District Court for Linn County granted Attorney, Jon Vasey’s, Motion for Summary Judgment in full and dismissed all claims asserted against Mr. Vasey’s dram shop client in a lawsuit arising out of a motor vehicle accident. The Plaintiff argued the Mr. Vasey’s client, who owned an establishment that sold alcoholic beverages, was responsible for the driver’s intoxication which resulted in a fatal car accident. Mr. Vasey successfully argued his client could not be held liable for damages because there was insufficient evidence to prove the establishment sold alcohol to the driver. The Court agreed with Mr. Vasey that the Plaintiff did not provide sufficient evidence to prove his client was liable. The Court entered summary judgment in favor of Mr. Vasey's dram shop client and assessed costs to the Plaintiff.
