This kid's mother is suing everyone she can possibly think of - beer company, kid's girlfriend (who owned the car) and her mother (who gave it to her).
This is absurd. And stupid. She just needs to face the fact that her son made a stupid decision, and died for it. It's not as though he was killed by another drunk driver - he was the one driving drunk!
Stupid bitch. The case should be thrown out, and she should be fined heavily for wasting the court system's time and money.
(I'll admit that I don't know the details of the case... but there is no way all of these people can be blamed for bad judgement on his part...)
