I'm hoping a bartender or lawyer, or someone with some experience can help me with this. On an out of state trip, I ended up telling my BF that I didn't think we were going to work out. I left the suite to go to dinner, I came back and saw him on the elevator. He had obviously been drinking. I got him to come back to the suite with me since I got him some food too. He said he wanted to go back to the bar to drink, I tried to plead with him not to go because he was already impaired. If he drank more, I knew he was going to end up being very mean. A few hours later, he comes back and is in my face, saying mean things. I get up to try to leave, he shoves me on the floor and slaps me around. He proceeded to beat me for about 30 minutes (according to the neighbors who heard me screaming for help and did nothing until I was able to fight my way out & saw them in the hallway so I ran in their room). I can barely move, I'm bruised from head to toe. I refused EMS services because I just wanted to pack up and drive home. When was the bartender supposed to stop serving him? I heard somewhere that if a drunk harms someone after leaving the bar, the bar/bartender is liable. The bar was new, it had only been open 3 nights. It's a bar that is inside of the resort we were staying at. My ex is in jail, I go to court in 2wks. Any information will help, I plan on calling a lawyer tomorrow.
