Coors being sued by stupid mother

    RENO, Nevada (AP) -- The mother of a 19-year-old killed in a traffic accident is suing Coors Brewing Co., claiming that it promotes underage drinking.

    Jodie Pisco, of Reno, contends Coors has failed in its duty to protect the country's youth from drinking. Her son, Ryan, was killed in 2002 after he drank Coors at a party and drove his girlfriend's car into a light pole at 90 mph, the lawsuit says.

    The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in Washoe County District Court, seeks unspecified damages. It accused Coors of "glorifying a culture of youth, sex and glamour while hiding the dangers of alcohol abuse and addiction."

    Laura Sankey, a spokeswoman for Golden, Colorado-based Coors, said that although she could not comment on pending litigation, the company "doesn't want underage consumers -- period."

    "Tragedies like this further reinforce why the fight against underage drinking and drunk driving must continue," Sankey told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

    Also named in the suit were Ryan Pisco's girlfriend and her mother. The lawsuit alleges the girlfriend allowed Pisco, who lacked a valid driver's license, to drive off in her car, which had been given to her by her mother.

    The real tragedy here is that the poor kid spent the last moments of his life drinking that swill.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    Absolutely ridiculous. Once again, someone who can't face up to their responsibility looking for someone else to blame.

    I hope this gets thrown out immediately.

    If I go out and have a threesome with a hot set of twins and contract an STD can I sue them for 5 million?? Coors made me want to have sex with twins from their commercials... they must pay!

    (and yes.. I know that it would never happen :lol: )

    If you're going to sue Coors for anything it should be for making a shitty beer.

    Hard to argue with that. Not worth a lawsuit, though. Parenting must take over.

    Well if the lawsuit against Coors fails I'd hate to be the company that installed that light pole, or the company that made the tires he was driving on, or the last gas station he filled up at, or...........

    Actually, the real tragedy here is that Pete Coors is running for U.S. Senate in Colorado. :shake:

    I hope the mother had to put a large down payment to retain her lawyer... no way they win the case, and I doubt Coors would settle (that would open them up to many more crazy cases)...

    where did they buy the booze? Where was the party? Heck, have the state sue the mother, if she would have allowed her son to get a drivers liceance, he would have known how to drive, and would't have driven a car into a post at 90 mph...
