Case No. 16–1218

Rhonda Banwart, Individually and as Next Friend of A.B. and M.B., Minor Children
v.
50th Street Sports, L.L.C. d/b/a Draught House 50

Rhonda Banwart seeks further review of the court of appeals’ decision affirming the district court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of defendant 50th Street Sports, L.L.C. d/b/a Draught House 50, and dismissing her petition alleging dramshop liability. Banwart asserts the court’s ruling is inconsistent with Supreme Court cases permitting post-event evidence of intoxication to serve as the basis for the inference that the establishment knew or should have known the patron was intoxicated at the time of service. See Smith v. Shagnasty’s Inc., 688 N.W.2d 67, 74-75 (Iowa 2004). Banwart further claims the ruling is inconsistent with the legislature’s intent in adopting the dramshop statute.
