Q: Can I sue my spouse's employer for requiring that he attend a Dec 24 "Christmas Party" that resulted in a wreck and DUI?
The party was only open to :male" employees at the management level, and they have provided a "loan" to my spouse for attorney's fees, not for the repair of my totalled vehicle...furthermore, they own a British Pub restaurant concept and should know better, and have employee policies regarding this.....please advise.
A: This is really a civil law and employment law question, not a criminal defense DUI question. You should redirect this question to that portion of the site. However, if your husband is facing a DWI charged in Texas, he should have contact a criminal defense attorney for representation. Good luck!
A: Did they hold your husband down and force alcohol down his throat? He needs to contact a criminal defense attorney for his DWI and a civil lawyer if he intends to sue for his car damages. I opinion is that you have no civil case but civil law is full of stupid jury decisions.
