What are the damages? If he did in fact drink and drive he will still be guilty of the crime. It might be possible to sue for this but how old is he?Ask a similar question
Changed this to a "personal injury" question. You might also want to post it im employment law. This question doesn't have anything to do with the criminal defense issue.Ask a similar question
It appears your brother needs to accept personal responsibility for his actions in using a false ID to gain entry to a bar, for drinking while he was under the legal age, and for driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Although other lawyers may disagree, it appears you brother has no viable claims for personal injury damages. Best wishes.Ask a similar question
It sounds like a difficult situation for your brother, however, I do not see what the viable personal injury claim is. Your brother made the decision to drink underage and then operate a motor vehicle under the influence. That is a criminal offense and he will bear the responsibility for that if found guilty. No one held a gun to his head to do this, though it does sound like his bosses exerted some influence. Also, just assuming he had a viable claim, he might not have too much in the way of damages. Has he hired an attorney for the criminal case? If not, he should certainly do so. Good luck.
