Liability Related to Cover Charges

Thinking about including a cover charge for your kegger over Spring Break? Consider the latest judicial decision from California, and do some research to learn the state of the law in Ohio:
California high court rules cover charge at parties creates liability: The family of a man killed by an underage drinker who'd consumed alcohol at a house party in 2007 sued the host's family. The court says a cover charge amounts to a sale.
Any books we have in the law library related to Ohio law can be found shelved with the prefix KFO. (KF is the prefix for American Law; O is the part that refers you to laws of Ohio, Oregon, and Oklahoma.) Stop by the Reserve room or the State and Federal Collection under the mezzanine for more.
