10:00 - 11:30am Oral Argument and Panel Discussion
Dupray v. JAI Dining
Dupray v. JAI Dining is an appeal from a jury verdict in a dram shop case awarding $3.5 million in compensatory and $4.4 million in punitive damages to Mark Dupray for serious injuries sustained in an automobile accident caused by an intoxicated driver, Pedro Panameno. The jury allocated 40% of the fault and all but $400,000 of the punitive damages to JAI Dining, which owns the Jaguars gentlemen’s club at which Mr. Panameno claimed to have spent part of his day prior to the accident. JAI Dining’s appeal raises issues regarding a tavern’s duty of care and the doctrine of intervening and superseding causation as they apply when an intoxicated person is driven to and from the tavern by someone else and has an accident only after voluntarily leaving the location to which he has been transported. JAI Dining also challenges the sufficiency of the evidence based on conflicts between witness and toxicology evidence and the availability and ratio of punitive damages.
