Legal Case

Legal Case:

On September 3, 2013, the Supreme Court of Hawaii rendered their decision in the matter of Tracy Ah Mook Sang v. Clark, Hawaii Supreme Court 2013. The Supreme Court considered the ruling of the First Circuit Court granting summary judgment to the Clark family, holding they were not liable for Makamae’s death.

The case considered by the Hawaii Supreme Court was whether a social host who invites a minor onto his or her property and then directly serves alcohol to the minor owes a duty of care to prevent foreseeable injuries resulting from consumption of the alcohol, or to render or summon aid if injuries have occurred, while the minor remains on the property as a guest.
