Idaho Inmates Sue Booze Companies for Getting Them Drunk
We have seen it over and over again. People pointing the finger at other people for something they did. Our society seems to enjoy the thought of not accepting the consequences for their actions and suing people. You have seen it at the grocery store when someone slips, or even McDonalds when someone spills coffee. Now they are going after booze.
According to the Huffington post
Five inmates at the Idaho State Correctional Institution are suing national beer and wine companies for $1 billion, claiming that alcohol was responsible for their crimes, the Associated Press reports. The civil suit alleges that they were not sufficiently warned about alcohol's addictive properties.
The companies targeted by the lawsuit are Miller Brewing Company, Anheuser-Busch Co., Adolph Coors Co., Brown-Furman Co., American Brands Inc., Pepsi-Cola, RJR Nabisco, Gallo's Winery, Ernest Gallo and Julio Gallo. None of them have yet responded to the suit.
