philly.com – The demise of George Thomas Fadgen III in a horrific one-car crash on Interstate 95 last fall can be traced to “shot girls” at Club Risque, according to a lawsuit filed against the Northeast Philadelphia strip club. Fadgen III, 46, spent about four hours at the club the night of Sept. 6, 2012 and into the next morning before leaving in his car, the lawsuit claims, noting that after his death in the crash less than a mile from Club Risque, he had a blood alcohol content of .19. Three separate times between his arrival at the club on Tacony Street at about 10:15 p.m. and his departure shortly after 2 a.m., Fadgen III, of the 11000 block of Basile Street in the Northeast, used the ATM inside the bar to withdraw $100. The lawsuit claims the club is at fault for Fadgen III’s death because it failed to adhere to Pennsylvania liquor-liability laws, also known as Dram Shop laws. They are meant to ensure liquor-serving establishments don’t continue to serve a patron after the person is “visibly intoxicated.” What do lawyers on behalf of his estate believe he spent that $300 on? The very accessible shots that waitresses carry around the club. “Club Risque, as asserted in the Complaint, broke the law by failing to operate in a lawful manner that would have protected George Fadgen from harm,” Barrett said. “Now it must be held accountable for its actions.”
By this logic, every obese person in America who dies of a heart attack should be able to sue the restaurants they frequented while they were alive, right? Because certainly it’s the restaurant’s fault that they didn’t stop these husky monsters from eating themselves into an early grave. They shouldn’t have been so selfish and taken the proper steps to “protect” these greasy sumbitches from self-harm. No reason why high-calorie establishments shouldn’t also be “held accountable for their actions” too.
Seriously, can’t anybody accept blame anymore? Surely George Thomas Fadgen III’s family is upset that he died after buying $300 worth of sugary bullshit shots all night, but blaming Krissy and Kiersten-Ann with the cesarean scar for feeding dude too many shots is obvious overkill.
