Man sues tavern near University of Oregon campus for $3.75 million

A popular watering hole near the University of Oregon is being sued for $3.75 million by a man who says a freak injury at the bar has left him unable to pursue “a host of attractive, lucrative careers” in music and medicine.

Winston Martin asserts in a lawsuit filed in Lane County Circuit Court that he suffered severe cuts to his left hand when — at a Max’s Tavern bartender’s request — he tried to separate a pint glass from a metal drink shaker, and the glass shattered.

The bartender had used a pint glass, rather than the shaker’s lid, to mix a margarita for a female patron, but asked Martin for help when he was unable to loosen the glass from the shaker, the suit alleges.

The bartender had served Martin at least six alcoholic drinks before the injury occurred, according to the lawsuit.

1. Max's

 

wow. my shitty band used to play there all the time in the 90's. small dive, people always threw the peanuts they served at us! one time a guy drove his harley through the bar while we rocked out. i guess it changed later, became more college oriented, but it was the first place I thought of when i read headline.

$3.75 million sounds like it will probably be shutting down or being sold.
