TABC Certification News: ‘Texas’ party host responds to crash lawsuit, TABC investigation
You may recall our previous post where we discussed the value of TABC certification at private events and parties … Parties like the one thrown for the cast of the show ‘Texas’, which resulted in five cast and crew members being killed in an alcohol-related car accident which is now being investigated by the TABC.
In response to a civil lawsuit being filed against him by the families of those who were killed, the party’s host has filed a response with the court and even provided a copy of the party invitation. You can see the response and invitation here. It’s a confusing and muddy situation because while the invitation clearly states the party was BYOB for attendees 21 and older and that everyone should have a designated driver, alcohol was obviously easy to obtain at the party for those under 21. The TABC is now investigating whether alcohol was made available to minors at the party.Back to Blog
