Episode Description

Attorney Fred Tromberg will join Dr. Brad Krevor and Mark Willingham for a discussion of the nature of civil litigation, the concept of restorative justice for victims of alcohol-related harms, and the use of the civil justice system as a deterrence for improper alcohol service. Listeners may find it interesting to understand how the civil justice system differs from the criminal justice system and understand what recourse may be available to them if they or a loved one have been harmed through negligent or purposeful over-service or alcohol service to a person under 21.
