$45,000 Verdict in Valparaiso, Indiana for Man Stabbed in Tavern

A few drinks turned into a nightmare for "Tony" (not real name) when he visited a now-defunct tavern in Valparaiso, Indiana.

The man, who was African American, had been receiving verbal abuse during the evening from another table. He complained to bar management, who did not evict the harassing patrons from the establishment.

A short time later, the man was sucker-punch and stabbed with a sharp instrument (not deeply).

He sought medical care.

A jury in Valparaiso, Indiana found the establishment was negligent in providing security and keeping all of its patrons safe.
