Judge rejects lawsuit by woman punched at McMinnville bar

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A woman who claimed she suffered a fractured eye socket after a drunken man punched her at a McMinnville bar has lost her $800,000 lawsuit against the business.

The Oregonian/Oregon Live reports ( Talisha Blevins claimed the Cabana Club was partially responsible for the incident because it served the man while he was visibly drunk. She had sought about $750,000 for pain and suffering and $44,000 for medical bills.

The bar's Portland attorney had argued that Blevins couldn't prove her claims. He also said the bartender had no idea of knowing that Patrick Allen Reimer would go on to commit the crime.

A judge agreed to dismiss the case Wednesday after finding Reimer 100 percent responsible for Blevin's damages.

Reimer is currently serving a prison term.
