Special Events, Dancing and Live Entertainment
Bars and clubs are required to have certain licenses and permits in order to serve alcohol to customers and offer live entertainment, dancing and special events. These licenses have conditions that the bars and clubs must meet and in many cities, like San Diego, the bar is required have a certain number of licensed guards per patrons. If there aren’t enough guards, or if the guards aren’t sufficiently trained or licensed, the bar or club will be in violation of its licenses. This, of course, makes it more likely that the they will be considered responsible for the harm to the victim.
Bouncer on Patron Violence
Bouncers and guards are responsible for maintaining order in bars and clubs. Unfortunately, bouncers and guards are commonly filled with too much testosterone and take their jobs too far. As a consequence, instead of breaking up fights and keeping the peace, they end up assaulting and battering patrons for unjustifiable reasons. What the law says is that even if a bouncer or guard intentionally (rather than negligently) injures a patron, the bar is still responsible for the harm.
