Estate of Narleski v. Gomes

New Jersey Supreme Court

September 17, 2020

If you live in NJ and have kids, read Estate of Narleski v. Gomes. Here, the NJ Supreme Court held that an underage adult defendant may be held civilly liable to a third party drunk driving victim if 3 elements are met: 1. the defendant facilitated the use of alcohol by making their home available as a venue for underage drinking, regardless of whether they are a leaseholder or titleholder of the property; 2. the guest causing the crash became visibly intoxicated in the defendant’s home; and 3. it was reasonably foreseeable that the visibly intoxicated guest would leave the residence to operate a motor vehicle and cause injury to another.
