Well, actually it's our problem and not just his. A ridiculous legal system enforcing ridiulous laws, often produces ridiculous law suits because there is so little common sense in the law. And common sense should say, that yes corporations should be liable some for the dangers produced by their product, especially when it is advertised in a dangerous manner.
The young man certainly did act irresponsibly. And that should be taken into account. But why not hold alcohol advertisers liable for people who do exactly what their advertising usually is promoting? The images are always of young people partying, drinking, having a good time in a large social setting where faces are alit with glee and success. Of course, we know, that the real people have to drive to these events, and then drive home afterwards.
So it's absolutely stupid to allow these alcohol corporations to lobby our government where they can actually put their false imagery that their product is harmless fun on TV, to promote this stupid behavior and beer sales. They should have their advertising mainly banned, and be legally held liable for the injuries done to others by their products until alcohol advertising is severely limitted.
That is called holding corporations responsible. Many seem to only want to make individuals responsible for individual actions, but forget that coporations need also to be held, to yet an even higher standard than that of the individual. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing that. So this is the wrong suit but Coors still needs to be sued big time. And I am hoping that all the alcohol coporations get pulled in the same direction that Big Tobacco has been in. They need to be held accountable.

At 19 you can serve in the military, drive a car, buy a home, vote. If you are too stupid not to drink and drive that's you're problem.
