What is server intention and how does it relate to dram shop actions of liquor liability?

Sometimes when we’re dealing with alcohol related incidences, we’ll hear law enforcement people or lawyers use the term, “server intervention.” So what are we talking about? Server intervention? Really, all we’re talking about is the bartender cuts somebody off, you’ve had enough. Listen, you come here 3 times a week, every time you come in here you have at least 10 drinks. You’ve had 10 today and that’s enough. I’m not selling you another beer, I’m not selling you another shot, enough is enough. That’s server intervention. It’s also something that almost never happens in liquor liability cases or alcohol related incident cases. If it did, then we wouldn’t have a case.
