Man beaten by drunken stranger sues Portland bar

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — A man who was kicked in the head by a drunken stranger at a Portland bar is suing the bar for as much as $749,000.

In the lawsuit filed last week in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Nathan Anderson says the Wishing Well Restaurant and Lounge served Michael Sloan too many strong drinks and fostered an unsafe atmosphere.

The lawyer for the bar, Jeremy Reeves, disputes the allegations. He says it cooperated with police and prosecutors about the fight “that unfortunately occurred on the Wishing Well’s premises.”

The Oregonian reports Sloan was convicted of assault for the attack in October 2012 and sentenced to two years in prison.
