Underage drinking lawsuit against Kraft Group moving forward

Updated:

BOSTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) A judge has allowed a lawsuit against Kraft Group related to underage drinking inside Gillette Stadium parking lots to move forward.

The lawsuit was brought by the family of Milton native Debra Davis and Norton native Nina Houlihan. Davis died in a crash about a mile from Gillette Stadium after drinking in the parking lot during a concert. Houlihan survived the crash. Both girls were 20 years old at the time of the 2008 crash.

The families are claiming that Kraft Group was willfully negligent and had a duty to monitor the parking lot and prevent underage drinking outside the 2008 concert.

Davis' family is seeking $2.5 million, while Houlihan is seeking $250,000.

The Boston Globe reported weeks ago that a lawyer for the Kraft Group said in court the women brought their own alcohol and were trespassing since neither of them had tickets for the concert.

FOX 25 reached out to Kraft Group for comment regarding a judge's decision to allow the suit to go forward on Friday. They said they do not comment on ongoing litigation.
