Court Reviews Liability of a Bar's Insurer for the Death of a Bar Patron

DONNA CLARK v. SPUTNIKS, LLC ET AL. (Tenn. Ct. App. May 26, 2011)

The trial court determined that the insurer of a bar was liable under its commercial general liability policy and liquor liability policy for the death of a bar patron. We have concluded that this occurrence is excluded under the assault and battery exclusion of the commercial general liability policy but is covered by the liquor liability policy.
