It was a matter of time. Josh Hancock’s father is suing Mike Shannon’s restaurant, claiming in was negligent in serving alcohol to the Cardinals’ pitcher, who died in an auto accident last month.
As of now, Hancock’s father isn’t suing the Cardinals or MLB.
Accountability, obviously, isn’t an issue. Never mind Hancock was drinking a few days earlier when he was involved in a minor accident. Never mind he was well over the league limit. Never mind he was speeding. Never mind he was on a cell phone.
Do you sue the liquor company? Do you sue the trucking company that brought the liquor to the restaurant? Do you sue the manufacturer of Hancock’s vehicle?
Why doesn’t Hancock Sr. sue himself for not teaching his son better?
The bottom line is it is Hancock’s responsibility.
