The Dram Shop Act provides for liabilty to purveyors of alcohol for injuries caused by intoxicated patrons.
Connecticut's Dram Shop Act provides for a purveyor of alcohol to be held liable for injuries an intoxicated person caused if that purveyor sold alcoholic beverages to the intoxicated person after he or she was already intoxicated.
