The two attended college in Tallahassee and stopped off for drinks at the two restaurants before attempting to drive home. Both Eddie, who was driving, and Suzie were found to have blood alcohol levels above those deemed safe by Florida laws. Three servers were charged with providing alcohol to minors, and received community service, fines, and were told to write letters of sympathy to the parents of the dead twins.
The parents of the twins went on to file lawsuits against the two restaurants in 2003. An attorney for the Wards stated that TGIFriday settled the case with the Wards months ago, although he did not disclose the settlement figure. Last week Applebee’s also settled for over $2 million.
It is alleged that one of the servers in one of the bars the twins were in was a friend of theirs and knew that they were not of legal age to drink until the next day, but went ahead and served them anyway.
