Wrongful death suit filed against parents who provided alcohol to teen
Posted on January 22nd, 2010 by Zane Cagle
In a wrongful death suit filed in Massachusetts over alcohol-related drowning, a mother alleged that two adults and five minors provided alcohol to her 17-year-old daughter on the night of her death.
The lawsuit alleges that the teen became “severely intoxicated” during the course of multiple parties on October 17, 2008 before wandering away from one of them and drowning in a nearby swamp. According to the plaintiff’s attorney, the complaint primarily relates to the illegal provision of alcohol to underage drinkers, including the deceased, and allowing the teens to party at the defendant’s homes.
