Allied Barton Lawsuit
An Allied Barton lawsuit has been filed against three former owners of the now-closed Barton Alcoholics Anonymous Group. The owners were arrested on suspicion of facilitating a major alcohol scheme, which involved selling alcohol to underage customers. The U.S. attorney’s office in Las Vegas, however, has decided not to press charges as the scheme was conducted on a small scale and no one suffered serious harm.
The lawsuit claims the bar was serving customers drinks when it opened in June 2021.
A number of people who worked at the bar did not show up for work the next day, prompting the bar employees to call the police. A search of the business found nearly 18 bottles of liquor, as well as several bottles of brandy and beer. Police confiscated several more bottles of alcohol, which the bar owner attempted to sell to customers within the next few days. The manager of the bar then called the police, claiming that all of the bar employees had been drinking and that minors were also present during the bar’s operation.
Allied Barton is attempting to get compensation for the legal costs incurred by the Bar employees.
In addition to the actual damage to the business, the suit is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. Attorneys representing the bar are trying to claim that the Bar’s owners did not know of the illegal alcohol sales and did nothing to stop it. The managers of the bar are also being sued for failing to prevent the sale of the alcohol. These claims have been disputed by the defendants in the suit, who say that they have a duty to ensure that all licenses are in place, and that they did not know about the alcohol sales.
When the bar employees were questioned later, several of them said they were only joking around with some of the customers and that the manager was unaware of the incident.
Several other employees have come forward to testify that the bar owner and bartender knowingly let the bar employees serve more alcohol than was legal according to their contract. The plaintiffs are also attempting to get the court to award compensation for mental anguish, stress, medical bills, and physical injury.
The legal issues involving this case have been complicated by one of the bar’s employees suing the owner of the establishment.
This employee was reportedly upset because the bar’s door was locked when he came in, and later was removed from the premises. He later went on to file a personal injury lawsuit against the business. Many of the bar’s regulars and patrons have since criticized the police for arresting the man for disorderly conduct after he tried to ask the bouncer about the validity of his order.
The attorney representing the bar has argued that the police should have arrested the man on another charge, such as theft.
The man had been drinking alcohol, which is against the law, and he was carrying a bottle of liquor when he entered the bar. The bouncer had told him that he cannot serve alcohol to anyone if he had already had one drink. The court did not rule on this issue, but has ruled that the intoxicated man can sue the establishment because he suffered an injury while trying to drink alcohol.
It seems that many bar owners and managers are willing to settle this case out of court rather than go to trial.
However, the owners and managers of Allied Barton LLC have vigorously opposed the lawsuit. They argue that the company does not own the bar. Furthermore, they argue that the employees do not have a case as the bar owner was the one who poured the alcoholic beverage. There is even one bar owner who has started a website to oppose the lawsuit, saying that it is “frivolous and meritless”. Others say that it is simply an attempt by organized labor to unionize.
Although the allied Barton lawsuit may be unfortunate, it is not the first time that organized labor has tried to organize against a business. In fact, there are several lawsuits currently pending in state and county courts across the country. The labor unions have also targeted businesses such as pizza shops, fast food restaurants, hotels, motels, bars and liquor stores. The laws governing this case are not as complicated as you might think. If you drink at a bar, the act itself is usually not illegal, but there are some rules that might apply to you if you drink at any place that serves alcohol. If you have any concerns about drinking at an establishment where you know or suspect that there may be underage customers, you should advise the management right away.
