Update: A settlement has been reached.

Update March 5: The family of Quentin Gregory Miller who died after his vehicle was struck by Adam Joseph Burnell's car has sued The Neighborhood Dining Group.

That group owns the downtown Charleston Husk restaurant where Burnell was an assistant manager.

The Charleston City Paper followed up and notes that the case pivots around an accusation that Husk allowed Burnell  to consume free drinks and did not try to stop him from driving home.
