From the NY Post:
The family of a doctoral student killed last year by a drunken driver is suing the popular Queens bar that allegedly kept serving the man until his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit, a lawyer said yesterday.
A suit will soon be filed against the Cavo Lounge, of Astoria, according to Scott Rynecki, one of the lawyers for the family of Panayiota Demetriou.
Demetriou and cabby Bessy Velasquez were killed when Daryush Omar ran a red light in the early-morning hours of Nov. 16.
"We are looking for justice," Demetriou's family said. "We want to protect other families so they won't go through this."
Rynecki said the suit would be filed under the rarely used Dram Shop Act, which holds establishments civilly liable for serving the visibly drunk.
