Lawsuit Filed By Wife Of Intoxicated Hockey Fan Settles

State law does not allow obviously intoxicated persons who are served alcohol to sue parties that sold them drinks, but others who suffer losses as a result - can.

The Minnesota Wild, the Xcel Energy Center's manager and a concession company have reached an out-of-court settlement with a woman whose intoxicated husband was paralyzed in a vehicle crash after being ejected from a Wild game.

Rebecca Lodahl of Woodbury sued the groups, charging that her husband, Kris Lodahl, was obviously intoxicated when he bought alcohol at the center. After being thrown from the arena for spilling beer on another fan, Kris Lodahl flipped his sport-utility vehicle on a freeway exit ramp and was pinned under it. His back and head injures left him a paraplegic, court documents show. State law does not allow obviously intoxicated persons who are served alcohol to sue parties that sold them drinks, but others - such as spouses who suffer losses as a result - can bring lawsuits.
